Salmon Doubts

I loved Salmon Doubts by Adam Sacks - it's going on my top 20 list! Deceptively simple in appearance- but complex in thought- graphic novel.

Geoff, Henry, Louis, Samantha... the life cycle of these salmon imposed with existential questions! Want to think about concepts of conformity, individualism, sex, relationships? The artwork reminds me of James Kolchaka (Monkey vs. Robot), printed with those purplish unusual inks-- a graphic artist could explain much more eloquently!

"Why are we swimming upstream? Because everyone else is? What's the point?"
"Tradition, I guess."
