The Invisible Man, Michigan-style 

The Nobody: Jeff Lemire (Vertigo/DC Comics)

The Nobody is the latest graphic novel from Toronto-based cartoonist Jeff Lemire, who earned critical praise and awards for his Essex County trilogy. In The Nobody, Lemire re-imagines the classic HG Wells story The Invisible Man by setting it in a tiny Michigan fishing village. The reactions of the locals to their bizarre new resident, who has taken up a permanent room at the local motel, range from fear, suspicion and hatred to curiosity and, in the case of one bored high school girl, fascination. Told with Lemire's instantly recognizable artwork, The Nobody is a quiet yet powerful tale with richly developed characters and dialogue that you can hear every word of.
