Description

This new ongoing series from True Swamp and Ghost Ship creator Jon Lewis is his most exciting work to date! Having explored, to critical and fan acclaim, the hidden world of an imaginary swamp and the dreamlike life of a fantastical shipful of pirates, Lewis now turns to the hilarious, touching and vibrant milieu of the modern American city and its denizens. Comic fans weary of narcissistic autobiography and schmaltzy soap-operas masquerading as realism will try on Jon Lewis’ Spectacles with delight — here is contemporary comics at its freshest and finest. Jason Lutes of Jar of Fools says the result is “an inspired new take on storytelling itself, transforming leaden conventions into gold.” Jeff Smith of Bone says Spectacles reveals Lewis’ “Kurtzman or Thurber-like knack for deciding what the story is — which slice of the pie to serve,” and Tom Palmer Jr. of Wizard says ” Spectacles proves that Lewis is bright-eyes and bushy-tailed while the rest of us are still asleep.”
