The Nobody – Jeff Lemire: Now You See It, Now You Don’t
December 30, 2013 Leave a comment
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.
