This little book is a real pleasure, great work on color and tempo. It embrace a place and give and project yourself into someone else story as if it was your own memory.
This is the just feeling of a place. A quick read and a true impression. To discover

Best comic I read in 2012 10 July 2013
By FredricWertham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I don't suspect this small collection of short, mostly pantomime comics will find a huge audience, although I hope it does. So often with "experimental" comics, thematic and emotional content is sacrificed in favor of aesthetic innovation. This is not the case in the work of Jon McNaught.

Designed with luminous layers of just three ink hues, McNaught's books are a testament to the underutilized potential of offset lithography. Of his three solo book works thus printed, Pebble island is my favorite. The story,"Broadcast"is the standout for me. Without giving too much away, it is a record of a fleeting moment that has haunted me since I first put the book down. The piece succeeds at understatement to a degree rarely achieved in comics.

Chester Brown cites "stillness and silence" as two qualities that draw him to the medium. I can't think of any comics that better exemplify these attributes than Pebble Island.
