Day Two of Preview month features is the Xeric Grant-winning LONE PINE by Jed McGowan, which looks like your typical duo-tone indie comic but turns into a mystery set in the deep, dark woods.
A distraught man retreats to the woods with a simple question on his mind: why did his last relationship end? He’s soon deep in a world of cryptic messages, shadowy figures, guns and philosophical crisis. A page-turning mystery told with exciting formal invention, Lone Pine is Jed McGowan’s debut graphic novel and a 2010 Xeric winner.
