Experience a surreal descent into one man’s psychosis in this haunting and chilling graphic novel from the New York Times bestselling author of Roughneck and Sweet Tooth, “the Stephen King of comics” (Maclean’s).
A man wakes up alone in a strange room with no recollection of who he is or how he got there. The padlocked doors and barren lobby reinforce the strangeness of this place. This is—as he reads from an old-fashioned keychain beside his bed—the Edgewater Hotel. Even worse, something ominous seems to be lurking in one of the rooms.
But when he meets a young companion—the only other soul in this vast, enveloping emptiness—his new friend begs him not to unlock the door. There must be something behind it…but what?
A haunted hotel on the edge of reality, an endless bridge spanning an infinite ocean, and a man and a boy looking for a way out. This is the setting for a boundary-pushing, genre-defying new work of fiction by one of comics’ master storytellers.
“Lemire is one of comics’ most popular and prolific writers... Amid [his] ongoing series, he occasionally finds time for smaller, more intimate projects, such as this pensive, enigmatic story… Lemire’s wispy, casual illustrations add to the dreamlike air of this quietly haunting tale.”
“Frogcatchers is a flawless, brutally sharp diamond that captures the fear, frailty, and unending mystery of what it means to be alive. Should be required reading for the human race.”
