Palookaville : #22, Hardback Book

Palookaville : #22 Hardback



Palookaville 22 is an all-new collection of work from It's a Good Life, If You Don't Weaken's Seth.

This instalment of Seth's critically acclaimed one-man anthology features an autobiographical comic about Seth's childhood, part four of his long-running Clyde Fans se--rial, a photo essay about a barbershop he designed, and a comic strip about the art of barbering. Nothing Lasts revisits Seth's childhood in 1960s Ontario, with a special focus on the salvation that he found in library books and drug-store comics.

Drawn in the sketchbook style Seth popularized in his books Wimbledon Green and The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists, "Nothing Lasts" offers a glimpse at the agonies of adolescence for a shy, often alienated, small-town teen.

The Clyde Fans chapter included here shows the conclusion of brothers Abe and Simon Matchcard's first lengthy conversation, and Abe's pensive, self-questioning mood as he drives back to Dominion to meet up with his old flame, Alice. Rounding out the collection is a photo essay on Seth's wife's barbershop, The Crown Barber--shop, and a short story in comics form about barbering. Palookaville 22 displays the range of Seth's cartooning and design career, and is a thing of beauty from cover to cover.
