The first part of Jason Lutes’ sprawling graphic novel introduces a surprisingly large number of characters and ties them to historical events in the late 1920. The drawings are detailed and sharp; the plot is heavy with emotion and a creeping sadness. Not as focused as Jar of Fools, but it’s not supposed to be. I hope he hurries up with the second installment.
