Wigfield: The Can-Do Town That Just May Not Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Wigfield is a small bucolic hideaway, situated in front of a massive dam which is about to be torn down by the state government to restore the salmon run. Wigfield's only hope lies in the self-righteous, self-involved "journalist" Russell Hokes, who arrives hoping to capture the quiet dignity of the disappearing American Small Town. However, Wigfield is nether quiet nor dignified. As the date of destruction draws nearer, Hokes casts about desperate to find something about Wigfield worth documenting. WIGFIELD is a razor-sharp satire by three major talents.

Synopsis:

A hilarious illustrated satire of a Lake Wobegon gone hideously wrong and the earnest reporter who hopes to save it from extinction. Wigfield is a town in danger, and its only hope lies in the self-righteous "journalist Russell Hokes, who arrives hoping to capture the quiet dignity of the disappearing American Small Town.
