Daniel Clowes is rapidly becoming one of my favourite graphic novelists of this decade. His stories always have witty banter, sarcastic and sharp characters, deeply human flaws and startlingly familiar slices of life.
Wilson is about a man called Wilson, who is despicable from his head to his toes. You hate him because he is a scumbag, he is selfish, hypocritical, mannerless and unreliable. His sad, lonely life without ever really connecting to another human being, besides his dog, is almost uncomfortable to read. However the humour and wit Daniel Clowes injects into his characters make whatever story he tells compelling and absorbing.
