Why Insomnia #1 Will Be Good

Matt Broersma's Insomnia #1 is solicited in the July Previews by Fantagraphics Books.

Here is the copy for the book, ""Insomnia is an ongoing series designed to present larger stories, piece by piece. The first issue introduces Eldorado, which follows Marco Clay, petty criminal, bartender and sometime corporate insurance accountant, as he evades the forces of the law on his way to the Mexican border."

Here is Broersma himself, explaining the book...
It's structured as a kind of jigsaw puzzle. The idea is it looks at a few characters whose stories interlock in some way. Not to make some big philosophical point necessarily, that's just a way for me to work and tie it all together.

The first part is about Marco Clay, who's exiled down in Mexico waiting for the statute of limitations to run out on some stuff he's wanted for. It's basically about his problems. The first issue is self-contained, the main story is called "Eldorado" and there's also a shorter one called "Four Kings".
In addition, Broersma offers up the following link to his website, where he has a section for Insomnia, including a sample page. Click here to go there.

On a lighter note, Broersma would also compare reading Insomnia #1 to "the first time you ever ate one of those Krispy Kreme donuts. In fact is has a kind of hypnotic aura about it, so that once you start reading it you are sucked into the world of Insomnia and part of your brain will stay there forever."

Hehe...can't beat that.

If that sounds like your cup of tea, be sure to tell your retailer! The code is JUL052853! The book is eight bucks.

But if reading the book is like eating a Krispy Kreme donut, does that mean my arteries will be clogged up?

Just kidding. I saw this book in Previews and your little post convinced me to pre-order it.
