Excerpts from Bureau Spectacular, a graphic novel by Jimenez Lai

/


Graphic novels aren’t just the province of superheroes and neurotic shut-ins. Forth is proud to feature an example of the new direction of this form, via an excerpt from Jimenez Lai’s Bureau Spectacular. In the author’s words, the work is an attempt “to better understand the spatial implications of the two-dimensional fiction.” Check out these pages for an illustration of a very literate theme: the struggle of man to transcend his environment for something he can’t tangibly describe, but which he intuitively knows is better.
