Beautiful watercolor artwork illuminates this tale of 20-somethings drinking and partying in an anonymous city. The three main characters are Gary, always drawn in grey, who tries but is socially a bit awkward and boring; his super-popular school friend Robbie, king of the 'Disco Harem', the literal life of the party in this book; and Naomi, a shy woman who has a beautiful one-night stand with Robbie. Everyone wants to be with Robbie; he enjoys but is diffident about the attention and takes it for granted, though he's not a nasty person. In fact he has a lot of sympathy for less radiant individuals. ( )

The entire book is illustrated with bright, beautiful watercolours. The astonishing thing is that Evans didn't draw the artwork first in ink then colour it with watercolours - no, he free-hand painted every illustration which, given how fast the paint dries and how impossible mistakes are to fix, means he's a very talented artist indeed.

The story doesn't match the artwork in quality but that's a small quibble. The book as a whole is a gem because it's packed with all that fabulous art. ( )

A beautiful comic, with a intriguing and artfully done story. Evens' unique watercolor technique drew me in from page one, but what kept me going was how perfectly he captures and portrays social interactions, from the trivial and awkward exchanges of a house party to the rapturous excitement of a late-night discotheque. This is a book that I look forward to coming back to again. ( )
