Noah Van Sciver (Author)


Noah Van Sciver is a keen observer of the human condition, exploring the decisions people make that make, break, and define them. Disquiet showcases the best of his short comics work, including: "The Death Of Elijah Lovejoy," the story of the midwestern abolitionist in the 1830s;"The Lizard Who Laughed," a painfully dysfunctional reunion; and "Punks V. Lizards," an anarchic and darkly comic piece of absurdity that blends Quadrophenia with Jurassic Park.

Wonderfully well planned and brilliantly visualized. Not to be missed.--Ray Olson
There is much to marvel at in the author's moody imaginings and sharply rendered visual style.
I have fallen in love with the work of cartoonist Noah Van Sciver. His work not only is wonderfully written, but his artwork works so well with the writing, that it is unbelievable.
The Archduke of downbeat returns with a collection of 14 shorts that range from the darkly comedic to just plain dark. This selection of early and more current material showcases both Noah's prodigious writing talent and evolving artistic capabilities.
Recalls the sensation of lying in bed while someone spins you a story, true or not. They may be disquieting, but they're weirdly comforting, too.
Housed in a nice textured, jacketless hardcover, this collection of short comics covers awide range of settings and media. Van Sciver's cartooning is observant and gestural, and his use of different media gives the book a bouncy variety.
