Green Wake Volume 1 TP

Green Wake Volume 1 TP - Kurtis J. Wiebe Green Wake took me in without notice. I was lured by the artwork of the vol.1's cover and convinced to buy it (along with vol.2, but I like vol.1 better) after just a few seconds looking at the rest of it. The final blow was given by one of the comic book store's guys, Marco, who told me the gist of it without spoiling it for me.When I finally picked it up, after reading Wiebe's Grim Leaper, I was amazed at how much deeper the story was than I expected it to be and, mostly, at how close to home it stroke. It's all about human relationships and feelings of guilt, despair and heartbreak. It's about trying to forget, and trying to forgive - others, but also yourself. Mostly, yourself.Green Wake still has me.
