A Strange Day (review)
Return to A Strange Day (review)
Miles gets to the local CD store (remember those?) before it opens. A friendly girl named Anna shows up for the same reason. They kill time together until the store opens and then end up hanging out for the rest of the day.
Overall this story is brief and remains fairly light while touching on some dark themes. At times it's pretty predictable. Even so, the interplay between Anna and Miles will strike a chord in any one who has ever been moved by Robert Smith's work or ever just felt out of step. Worth checking out for the illustrations: lush, evocative yet simple black inkwork.
I was really happy that neither of the two characters are smokers.
