The Death-Ray

Dan Clowes has topped himself once again. I didn't think he could top "Icicle Falls" from the last issue of Eightball, which was better than both Ghost World and David Boring, but his new story "The Death-Ray" is beyond praise. I can't find the words to describe how good it is. It's nominally a super-hero story about a boy named Andy and how he discovers his super-powers, but it is far more than that. It really is a character study but to say more would spoil the fun. And the art? It's puurrty!
