Down-to-earth tale about an imaginary town – not particularly uplifting

Royal City, Vol. 1: Next of Kin - Jeff Lemire

 

 

In this comic collection, we meet a family living in Royal City, a town centred around a failing manufacturing plant. The family are introduced to us, one by one, as they deal with grief over a dead relative and how this affects their everyday life. The plot is straightforward and the artwork consists of simple drawings which are reasonably clear. There is nothing particularly cheery about the story at this stage. The story will continue in further volumes and is worth a look.
