Jar of Fools

I’m still a beginner when it comes to graphic novels, picture stories, illustrated stories for grown-ups or however you want to call it.

I started out with The Sandman Chronicles (beautiful, sad, terrifying) and ended with Saga (beautiful, hilarious, uncomfortable). Just like with “ordinary” comics, it’s hard to know where to start.

I picked Jar of Fools because of the cover and discovered it to be a picture story a few seconds later.

The story is sad, without color, with color, and a pale hope for something better. It’s appealing; find it and read it.
