Hicksville is a terrific tale of love and betrayal, art and commerce, all steeped in an artistic brew of imagination and experience. Masterfully told in a variety of comic-book fragments and with a great cast of characters, Hicksville focuses on a tiny New Zealand town where comic books are the dominant art form. It's a rich story full of humor, emotion, romance, and real human drama. If you have an appreciation for the comics medium, you need to read this.
