A lonely building inspector still grieving the loss of his puzzle-loving daughter receives a mysterious phone call one night from a girl claiming it’s her and that she’s trapped in the middle of a labyrinth. Convinced that this child is contacting him from beyond this world, he uses an unfinished maze from one of her journals and a map of the city to trace an intricate path through a different plane of reality on an intense and melancholy adventure to bring his daughter back home.
I liked this, though not one of my favorite Lemire books. It was a slow start for me, and I’m not quite sure the end tied everything together quite right.
I thought the art worked really well for the tone of the story. I liked the use of sepia and color to emphasize emotion. I’m not sure the experimental panel layouts totally worked for me.
