Wilson, by Daniel Clowes
I used to read a lot of graphic novels. I still would if people would recommend them to me. I've enjoyed a lot of Daniel Clowes in the past, and this one was no different. Apparently it was his first book written with the intention of being a book, as opposed to his previous ones, which were collections.
Wilson is the story of a man who is at once despicable and pathetic. It's amusing, but sad, and you know things probably won't improve, especially as you watch him age. A good, short read.
