The Nobody – Jeff Lemire: Now You See It, Now You Don’t

The NobodyThe Nobody by Jeff Lemire
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

A stranger swathed in bandages comes to the nondescript town of Large Mouth (Population: 754). His efforts at staying invisible however, are thwarted as the town inhabitants are curious, then suspicious and then downright scared. A local teenage girl befriends him and much to his reluctance, discovers the secret hidden under the bandages.

This is the story of the Invisible Man, not as a crazed monster but a hapless victim of his own passionate quest. It’s interesting to note how even an Invisible Man is unable to stay truly invisible.

That apart, the story dragged a bit for me and ended rather anti-climatically.
