  • Plot- or character-driven? Character
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? No
  • Diverse cast of characters? It's complicated
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? Yes


I loved Essex County and this is a solid follow-up, notable mainly for Lemire's emotive visual storytelling, which props up an otherwise familiar story of overcoming family trauma.
