On just pure story, this book is well worth buying. Max has a great style of writing for this media. He just uses a few words, a very sparse commentary and little dialog that helps you feel like you’re discovering the story on your own. His artwork is very comfortable, too, so you feel at home in the images. I did, at least.
The limited color palette is a nice touch, too, keeping the whole thing tied really well together, with obvious transitions between subjects. Shots of the city or of buildings are black-and-white photographs, showing how they’re not really characters in the story, they’re just the backdrop.
The real characters, Cole and Spider and the rest of the neighbors are more fleshed out, more warm and vibrant than the scenery around them (which is quite often just white or a solid color, creating a great sense of space), forcing you to focus on them.
