The Underwater Welder
By Jeff Lemire
Original Graphic Novel
| The long awaited OGN by cavity man himself Mr Jeff Lemire.
As an underwater welder on an
oilrig off the coast of Nova Scotia, Jack Joseph
is used to the immense pressures
of deep-sea work. Nothing, however,
could prepare him for the pressures of
impending fatherhood. As Jack dives
deeper and deeper, he seems to pull
further and further away from his
young wife and their unborn son.
Then one night, deep in the icy solitude
of the ocean floor, something unexplainable
happens. Jack has a mysterious and
supernatural encounter that will
change the course of his life forever.
Equal parts blue-collar character
study and mind-bending mystery,
The Underwater Welder is a graphic
novel about fathers and sons, birth
and death, memory and reality,
and the treasures we all bury deep
below the surface.
cool kids are saying...
"With The Underwater Welder, Jeff Lemire
has created a moving, brilliant, and
fiercely original work about loss,
longing, and love.
Full of piercing moments that will stay
with you for long after you've finished
reading, The Underwater Welder is a
testament to the basic truth that down
in the depths or up on land, there's
nothing more haunting and wondrous
than the human heart. A masterpiece
of visual storytelling." -- Scott Snyder
(Batman, Swamp Thing, American Vampire)
It must be true Scott seems like a
charming chap, sparkling eyes and
square jawed like I’m not flushed
"A spectacularly unpredictable reading
experience... a roughly 220-page tour de
force with enough emotional resonance
that you might find yourself wiping away
a single tear while closing the book’s final
page. Thus far, this is my favorite original
graphic novel of the year." -- Erik Norris, IGN
WARNING: CONTENTS UNDER PRESSURE.
