    1 thought on “Snow Day”

    1. A smalltown sheriff gets fed up with being pushed around by the drunken louts employed by the corrupt local businessman and mayor and one day decides to push back. You can’t break the cold by breaking the thermometer… Pierre Wazem and Antoine Aubin’s Snow Day is an ok comic. I get the impression they’re shooting for a Coen Brothers-type quirky comedy/drama but, like everyone else who attempt to mimic the Coens’ style, fall short. That’s probably because everything about the story fee [...]

    2. Too low key to be a thriller and too slight to be an examination of life in a small town. It was nice enough, but I have to wonder if the idea came after watching the old Walking Tall movie and someone joking, "Hey, we should do Walking Short!" (Attention is drawn to the protagonist's height repeatedly throughout the story.)

    3. Snow Day is beautifully illustrated. The inking is beautiful. The landscapes are striking. The pacing of the story and its depth are a bit lacking. The writing seems choppy at times, and repetitive in others. It has elements of noir, but comes across as trying to hard. The sheriff is a good guy. From conversations with his ex and his housekeeper, we gather that he was away and now he is back, but we don't really know. These two women ask him why he has come back, or why he is still here, and he [...]

    4. Lawman decides to stop turning a blind eye to the town factory. Pretty straightforward, with a bizarre little surreal interlude over a few pages in the middle.

    5. This was an interesting graphic novel in that a lot of the sequences were pictures only-no words. Most of the time, the pictures were drawn impeccably except for a a bar brawl in the middle of the book which seemed to reflect that the illustrator was in a hurry to finish that sequence. Thus that was drawn much more loosely and sloppily than the rest of the book. But overall, the story was well written and the plight of the protagonist was such that the reader remained engaged until the end of th [...]

    6. Set in America’s heartland, author Pierre Wazem and illustrator Aubin combine their contemplative talent in an atmospheric black-and-white graphic novel, “Snow Day.”Spencer, the new town sheriff, along with his black cat, moves to an isolated, snow-covered backwoods town and finds himself knee-deep in trouble amidst a rough group of townspeople who don’t take kindly to outsiders.Late one night, Spencer hauls three rowdies to his jail and locks them up for a public disturbance, drinking a [...]
