Ice Haven

Dan Clowes is one of the most prominent names in graphic novels today. His book Ghost World was made into a successful and highly regarded film. Clowes’s characters tend to maneuver through his stories in a strange kind of desperate somnambulance that imbues his work with a distinctive feel. Ice Haven shares much of that tone with Clowes's previous work. This book features a collection of characters living in the shadow of a small-town tragedy. Each character struggles to define his or her direction in life, with the abduction of a local child serving as a unifying backdrop.
