Clever and very pretty (mostly),
This review is from: Infinite Vacation Deluxe HC (Hardcover)
I was given this book as a gift by a friend who knows my taste. I hadn't heard of it so went in blind. I was really impressed.
This is an example of a book with a strong and thoroughly worked through central concept: parallel universe theory has developed to the point where you can vacation in your parallel lives. As there are infinite universes there are infinite versions of your life to experience. We follow Mark, an infinite vacationer who begins to suspect someone is murdering versions of him in parallel worlds. Alongside this he meets a girl who could possibly be his soul mate, but hates infinite vacationers.
Look, I really haven't done the plot justice. The logic of the premise is followed through incredibly well which makes what could be a complicated idea make sense.
The art is brilliant, although the (infrequent) photo comic parts do not fit well in my opinion.
In the end all I can say is that I really enjoyed this book and would certainly recommend. It is definitely on my retread list.
