Big Questions - Anders Nilsen

As its title suggests, this is a book of mostly unresolvable Big Questions (Drawn and Quarterly, $44.95). And it’s not just because the protagonists happen to be small finches. Anders Nilsen’s new work is stark, yet richly illustrated; simple, yet dense in its ponderings; innocent—even childlike—yet brimming with a barely contained and often spontaneous violence. About matters of joy and death, philosophical quandary and religious zeal, Nilsen’s birds, snakes, and squirrels have more to say than any of his human characters do, but like their human counterparts, these creatures rarely find clear answers. Thought-provoking and exceptionally original, Nilsen’s opus is a must for any fan of the medium.
