Complete Essex County

Jeff Lemire
Jeff Lemire

Where does a young boy turn when his whole world suddenly disappears? What turns two brothers from an unstoppable team into a pair of bitterly estranged loners? How does the simple-hearted care of one middle-aged nurse reveal the scars of an entire community, and can anything heal the wounds caused by a century of deception?

 

Award-winning cartoonist Jeff Lemire pays tribute to his roots with Essex County, an award-winning trilogy of graphic novels set in an imaginary version of his hometown, the eccentric farming community of Essex County, Ontario, Canada. In Essex CountyY, Lemire crafts an intimate study of one community through the years, and a tender meditation on family, memory, grief, secrets, and reconciliation. With the lush, expressive inking of a young artist at the height of his powers, Lemire draws us in and sets us free.

This new edition collects the complete critically-acclaimed trilogy (Tales From the Farm, Ghost Stories and The Country Nurse) in one deluxe softcover volume. Also included are over 40 pages of previously unpublished material, including two new stories. A quite excellent and fascinating trilogy - if you missed it first time round in individual volumes then you should really grab this complete edition (also available in a hardcover version).

 

"A quiet, somber, haunting masterpiece... Lemire is writing about loneliness and regret, and I'm at a loss to explain how he manages to illustrate the devastating toll they take on his characters even as he inspires his readers." Steve Duin, The Oregonian

 

"This is the comics medium at its best." Booklist (from one of three starred reviews)
