I wasn't so crazy about the artwork in Air, but I appreciated that it wasn't your standard Vertigo Comic—by which I mean it wasn't a Sandman knockoff. It's a powerful, Pynchonesque conspiracy book about air travel, forgotten countries, and Amelia Earhart, and while it's taken a while for the book to really get its footing, there's nothing else quite like it on the stands. This is a shame.
The good news is that Wilson's (prose) memoir about converting to Islam, The Butterfly Mosque, will be released from Grove on June 8. I'm excited to read it.
