An ambitious book presented in a unique accordion-style format from the winner of the 2012 Lynd Ward Graphic Novel prize. Imagine you are Poseidon at the dawn of the twenty-first century. The oceans are dying and sailors have long since stopped paying tribute. They just don’t need you anymore. What do you do? Perhaps, seeking answers, you go exploring. Maybe you end up in Wisconsin and discover the pleasures of the iced latte. And then everything goes wrong. Using beautifully hewn silhouettes and an accordion-style layout that unfolds to more than forty feet in length, Anders Nilsen updates Greek myth and Christian allegory with insightful and devastating wit.
