Stellar review for Daniel’s Clowes “Wilson” in The Comic Reporter
Daniel Clowe’s new, original graphic novel, “Wilson” is Clause’s first novel not to be originally serialized in his seminal comic book series, “Eightball.” “Wilson” is a modern egoist-outspoken and oblivious to those around him”. How great does this sound?
“Meet Wilson, an opinionated middle-aged loner who loves his dog and quite possibly no one else. In an ongoing quest to find human connection, he badgers friend and stranger alike into a series of one-sided conversations, punctuating his own lofty discursions with a brutally honest, self-negating sense of humor. After his father dies, Wilson, now irrevocably alone, sets out to find his ex-wife with the hope of rekindling their long-dead relationship, and discovers he has a teenage daughter, born after the marriage ended and given up for adoption. Wilson eventually forces all three to reconnect as a family – a doomed mission that will surely, inevitably backfire.” via Atomic Books
