From the artist of The Li'l Depressed Boy, and Amber Benson's
Among the Ghosts, comes a haunting retail hell story like you've never
encountered before! A young artist takes a job at a department store in order to
make ends meet... little does he know that he may meet his end! In this gothic
story for fans of Black Swan, Blankets, and The Devil Wears
Prada, can the artist withstand competitive pressure, treachery, and high
fashion while still keeping his soul?

do you get when you put an artist in a department store selling nice clothes,
all the while wondering why being so clearly in retail hell doesn't stop him
from having a modicum of ambition to move up the fashion food chain? Grace (The
L'il Depressed Boy) draws upon his experience in retail to craft a graphic novel
that gives us a window into the life of an artist who is forced to take a job he
doesn't really want in order to pay the bills. What make the story so moving are
both the celebration of fashion Grace's character gives us and the introspection
of the artist as he looks back on the relationships that have served to define
him. While making connections to The Devil Wears Prada is natural, the
protagonist's reliance on his partner's understanding and support gets him
through the retail ordeal. Grace's attention to form and his skill with visual
hyperbole (as in, for example, the saleswoman he depicts as a Skrull) are
perfectly suited to the narrative. A sophisticated graphic novel that amply
displays Grace's talent for visual storytelling. (Oct.)
