Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 160699817X, Paperback)

In critically acclaimed cartoonist Noah Van Sciver's new graphic novel, angry, alcohol-fueled Joe works overtime at a pizzeria to support his ever-expanding family—and he wants out.

This sophomore graphic novel from Noah Van Sciver may seem like a left turn from his critically acclaimed debut graphic novel biography of Abraham Lincoln (The Hypo), yet upon closer reflection, it showcases Van Sciver’s preoccupation with pathos and the human condition. Saint Cole depicts four days in the life of a twenty-eight-year-old suburbanite named Joe, who works at a pizzeria to support his girlfriend Nicole and their infant child—and then Nicole invites her troubled mother to move into their two-bedroom apartment until she lands on her feet again. Joe reacts by retreating into alcohol: he wants out, and he's angry. He’s in a position to act rashly—and he does. Black & white
