Any volume of Finder is easier to read then it is to describe. Shaenon Garrity characterized the series in The Comics Journal, as being 'simultaneously straightforward and labyrinthine, genre-based and uncategorizable. It’s solid sci-fi of the kind they were making in the 1970s, Ursula Le Guin/Vonda McIntyre type stuff that’s all about anthropology and world-building and a little bit of the old feminism. McNeil calls it ‘aboriginal science fiction'.’’ But reading Finder is also more fun than reading about it. ( )

Picked up the "Finder" anthology based on the review by Glen Weldon and it definitely lived up to the expectation. Very imaginative writing, strong characters, and a unique world. The artwork is quite detailed and even though it is black-and-white, it seems to shine on the page. "Sin Eater", the longest of the stories, is just a bit too episodic and unfocused, but this is a very minor complaint because any content that doesn't directly contribute to the main plot line still manages to set a mood for the rest of the story.

Finder started in a little tiny apartment, and is now done in a much larger house.  The series is dedicated to Michael. Love you.

Sin-Eater started with Cat-Boy, who wanted to know what happened after that. And after that. And after that.  Thanks, Kitty

King of the Cats was inspired by the wildlife photography of Mitsuaki Iwago and the novel Mind of My Mind by Octavia Butler.

Talisman is for the kid with the book, wherever and everywhere.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

Set in a vastly depopulated far-future Earth where numerous hunter-gatherer cultures, some human and some not, surround densely overpopulated domed city-states of recognizably modern urbanites functioning at a high technological level. Jaeger is a finder, a hunter-tracker bound by a secret society to give aid to anyone when asked.
