Graphic Content Book Club: "Anti-Gone" by Connor Willumsen

Graphic Content is our reading group exclusively for graphic novels and comics!

This month the club will be discussing Anti-Gone by Connor Willumsen.

Reality’s grip is loosened as Spyda and Lynxa explore a potentially constructed environment that shifts between dystopic future and constructed virtual present. Like a form of multistable perceptual phenomena, Anti-Gone exists in ambiguity.

“Connor Willumsen is a blackbelt of formalism in comics. There is an unending sense of “thinking” in this book. Every angle and every option is considered.”
― Caleb Orecchio, Comics Workbook

“Readers who enjoy the boundary-pushing work of cartoonists such as Dash Shaw and Olivier Schrauwen will freely surrender to Willumsen’s equally dreamlike world.”
― Publishers Weekly
