I have followed this family drama about two elderly brothers dull and grey since it began twenty three years ago in Palooka ville 10 and it is nice to find it all finally collected under one cover It s a tone piece than a story with the five parts skipping around the decades between the 1950s and 1990s The first chunk consists of the older brother wandering around a building in 1997 talking to himself about the history of his family s shuttered business and his experience in sales Low key but engaging in its wayThe second part jumps back to 1957 and has the introverted younger brother wandering around Dominion Canada Seth s fictional city for which he spent a decade building a real life scale model failing at becoming a traveling salesman It s a pretty interesting study of a man slowly falling apartAlas the book starts falling apart for me in the third section as we are thrust into a week of 1966 to experience the decline in mental health of the younger brother and their mother Dream seuences delusions and dementia dominate The older brother really starts leaning into being the cold asshole he is totally revealed to be in the next seuence set in 1975The final part returns to 1957 to crawl deep inside the younger brother s head following his failure at sales It s pretty much unreadable for me and almost leaves me wondering why I bothered with the book but really it s mostly about the art I just really like Seth s style

REVIEW Clyde Fans î PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB CHARACTERS ´ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Seth Seth ↠ 6 REVIEW A masterful work about a failing family business and the ensuing erosion of sibling relations and one’s sanityTwenty years in the making Clyde Fans peels back the optimism of mid twentieth century capitalism The legendary Canadian cartoonist Seth lovingly shows the rituals hopes and delusions of a middle class that has long ceased to exist in North America garrulous men in wool suits extolling the virtues of their wares to taciturn shopkeepers with an eye on the door Much like the myth of an ever growing ec. I liked to watch the real salesmen the old time travelers A lot could be learned from those guys Those fellas had plenty of charm They used to say that sincerity sells and if you can fake that you ve got it made Abe in Clyde FansA masterpiece the graphic novel event of the year well it s early so there may indeed be many a 480 page tome gorgeously rendered by author Seth and Drawn uarterly No one in comics loves the description graphic novel and Seth calls it a picture novel which I like even better and it has been TWENTY YEARS in the making As with the similarly decades long accomplishment of the previous year Jason Lutes Berlin this book is ambitious and meticulous and moving But whereas Berlin set in the Weimar Republic as the Naziis began to assume power has this massive historical and political scope Clyde Fans creates a much smaller world though seen with as incisive a lens The story of two brothers one of them Abe working in his father s fan business and his brother Simon taking care of their mother All three of them are less than likable or admirable they live lives of uiet desperation they talk to themselves andor objects in the rooms they inhabit almost exclusively alone But Seth has a kind of two edged approach here to the past to memory that imbues the landscape of this book that both celebrates the past and also reveals how we can sometimes be trapped in it There s a kind of achingly loving and melancholy nostalgia that infuses everything that Seth does that is especially evident in this work Not everyone will love it of course it s muted it is so much like Chris Ware s crushingly sad and yet thrillingly executed masterpieces Jimmy Corrigan and Building Stories Yes this book is that good But it is also that sad Seth Abe and Simon love craft uality fans novelty postcards comics and they can t uite keep up with the present The book tacks back and forth between 1957 1975 and 1997 as we see the lovely and almost reverent respect Seth gives to this old by gone vestige of a small business world that was already in 1957 beginning to be eaten up by big box corporations At least part of this book is about capitalism I guess but to only say that would be to ignore the respectful close look this book takes of this one working class family that was permanently damaged never to recover when Dad Clyde left the family never to return It s a respectful pained look at the death or at least struggles of the salesman I love the wordless pages to show the Canadian small town streets and buildings so deserted and lost They re all losing it Abe Simon and mother in their own slowly decaying ways but you really come to care for them because Seth does A Canadian Winesburg Ohio of sortsSo A masterpiece and as it goes with masterpieces not fun for everyone it s work you need to read closely and live into it s work as the best literary fiction can be it s not about people you love and admire it s about real working class people not heroes but it s an amazing accomplishmentI reviewed Book 1 long ago and also excerpts published in other places of this book as it developed It s been worth the wait and I ll read it again soon Check out any of his work you can get your hands on

    EBOOK Clyde Fans Ugh I’m starting to think that Seth just isn’t for me I don’t mind unlikeable characters I often really like reading about them actually but Seth’s endlessly morose men in this story and their ruminations on how they wasted their lives just did nothing for me Okay to say that this story is just about men ruminating on how they wasted their lives is a gross generalization there are some layers and other themes b
