Sabrina By Drnaso, Nick Book - 2018 | First edition

Nick Drnaso's second graphic novel begins deceptively simple. The plain, minimal style of the art seems pointed and satirical, like this is an expose of the emptiness and sterility of middle class white America, However, as the story unfolds, it becomes something more than that. The life led by people inside their cell phones. email, social media, and some talk radio, becomes is a disturbing sort of trap explored in a way that I have never quite encountered before. It is most convincing and truthful, but it is never preachy, which makes it particularly powerful.
