The startling new comic-tragic book from the artist The Comics Journal describes as "the scarily young and skillful Dash Shaw." In a pre-Katrina New Orleans, a woman starts dating a younger man who reminds her of her deceased ex-boyfriend. They begin re-enacting scenes from her previous relationship as a psychodrama to correct her haunting past. Replete with Pac-Man ghost spirits, Michael Jackson, children's drawings and deathtrap sandboxes, The Mother's Mouth is smarter, unsentimental Blankets that will be THE weirdo romance book of 2006. Not to be missed.
