cover of volume 1 of 'A Distant Neighborhood'Interesting take on time travel  — a man finds himself back in junior school living again in the family of his youth – before his father leaves them. Experiencing young adolescence with an adult eye.  Friendships, romance, loss of a parent. The drawings are restrained and intelligent and highly crafted. A very enjoyable read.
