Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book collects together what I think is one of the greatest achievements in comics in the last 10 years, Jeff Lemire's Essex County stories.

Essex County is a part of Ontario, Canada, and the three books collected here - Tales from the Farm, Ghost Stories, and The Country Nurse - explores the area and it's inhabitants.

Tales from the Farm follows a lonely boy called Lester who has recently lost his mother, never knew his father, and is in the care of his uncle. The two have an awkward relationship as they struggle to come to terms with grief and the balance of their relationship. Lester draws comics and dresses as a superhero, and finally makes a friend in the form of Jimmy LeBeuf, a gas station attendant who used to play for the Toronto Maple Leafs before an injury brought an end to his career. The two find a small measure of happiness in their bleak lives in their time talking together about comics and hockey.

Ghost Stories follows the story of two brothers, Lou and Vince LeBeuf, who play minor league hockey in Toronto. They both dream of making it into the big leagues but Vince (the more gifted of the brothers at hockey) meets a girl, marries her, drops hockey, and starts a family and farm out in the country. Lou tries to crack the major leagues but incurs a career ending injury and spends his life driving a tram in Toronto. A dark secret splits these once close brothers so that they never speak for decades.

The Country Nurse follows the story of Anne Byrne who looks after Lou LeBeuf as well as other people in Essex County. We find out about her lonely home life and her family's ancestors. The revelations in her family tie together the LeBeuf family and ties the trilogy together.

Satisfyingly bleak.... and a nice sketched/signed copy from Thought Bubble (Leeds) too :-)

There is something about Mr Lemire's art of big spaces whether urban or rural that just amazes me. Not too any lines but I can look at certain pages for ages.

A lovely, warm interwoven tale of family, friendship, love and loss. It's my first Jeff Lemire graphic novel but certainly won't be my last. Excellent story telling.

Format: Paperback
This is simply wonderful, one of the most touching stories I read in graphic format in the last few years.
The story is told through 3 different characters' point of views and little details connect them visually in a subtle and thoughtful manner. Beautifully drawn panels and pages with no dialogue convey a sense of poetic time that makes the narrative all the more powerful. Words cannot describe it, you have to let yourself go into Essex County!
