Farel Dalrymple’s Pop Gun War is about childhood, self-discovery, oppression, guilt, dreams, loneliness, whatever, and an inner city boy named Sinclair, who discovers a pair of discarded angel wings. With these wings, Sinclair flies around the city and gets into adventures.
Following a cast of disarmingly surreal characters — including a dwarf who becomes a giant and a young boy with wings growing from his shoulders — Pop Gun War is both a meditation on friendship and alienation, and a love letter to the city that Dalrymple calls home. Rich, textured, and unique, Pop Gun War is unlike anything you’ve ever seen.
