(W) Joshua W. Cotter (A) Joshua W. Cotter
An SF graphic novel, the second in an epic series, set in a near-future where the internet is telepathic and its hub is a human child. Vol. 2 moves away from the deep space transport where Vol. 1 took place and moves to earthly terrain, peeling back layers of Cotter's world-building to reveal the bigger picture of this graphic novel series in ways that upend expectations. Aveline Moiré is a headstrong but self-destructive young French woman.
When she meets and moves in with a young artist, Walter Walker, little do they know that the wheels they set in motion may bring about the end of humankind. Working within the structure of SF, Nod Away moves back and forth between physical and psychological worlds. It utilizes traditional and abstract storytelling styles to explore what consciousness could be, its location, what function or point it might serve, and how a lack of personal responsibility and
accountability will always corrupt it. At a projected seven volumes and over 2000 pages in all, Nod Away is poised to be one of the great comics classics of the 21st century. Joshua Cotter's debut graphic novel, Skyscrapers of the Midwest, was nominated for an Ignatz award in 2005. He lives on a farm in rural northwest Missouri with his family and an acute sense of impending mortality. They keep him making comics.
