Welcome to Ice Haven! ?It?s not as cold here as it sounds,? declares Random Wilder, our reluctant guide to this sleepy Midwestern town. He?s also its would-be poet laureate. Would-be, that is, were it not for the ?florid banalities? of his archrival, Ida Wentz, pub_lished ad nauseam in the Ice Haven Daily Progress. Among Wilder?s other fellow Ice Havians are the love_lorn Violet Vanderplazt and Vida Wentz; the adorable interracial moppets Carmichael and Paula; the Blue Bunny, newly sprung from prison and the bitterest rabbit in town; and poor little David Goldberg, miss_ing for more than a week now. . . .

The lives of the men and women of Ice Haven are woven into a multilayered tale that, while it owes a debt to Our Town, is ultimately based on and inspired by . . . Leopold and Loeb. No kidding.

Only Daniel Clowes could do it and, luckily for us, he has.
