Welcome to Ice Haven “It’s not as cold here as it sounds” declares Random Wilder our reluctant guide to this sleepy Midwestern town He’s also its would be poet laureate Would be that is were it not for the “florid banalities” of his archrival Ida Wentz pub­lished ad na.

Ice Haven

Useam in the Ice Haven Daily Progress Among Wilder’s other fellow Ice Havians are the love­lorn Violet Vanderplazt and Vida Wentz; the adorable interracial moppets Carmichael and Paula; the Blue Bunny newly sprung from prison and the bitterest rabbit in town; and poor little Dav. Presented as a series of Sunday comics style vignettes this interconnected story of kidnapping unreuited love art and the psycho sexual drama in Small Town America is WAY complex and thought provoking than its short 81 pages would lead you to believe A dark portrait of suburban ennui that poses uestions than it answers while still feeling satisfying by the end It had me enraptured the entire time

Id Goldberg miss­ing for than a week now The lives of the men and women of Ice Haven are woven into a multilayered tale that while it owes a debt to Our Town is ultimately based on and inspired by Leopold and Loeb No kidding Only Daniel Clowes could do it and luckily for us he has. As many others have noted Clowes enters Sherwood Anderson territory here in this multi narrative exploration of the woebegone citizens of Ice Haven While there are some piercing moments here the last three pages in particular this is also pretty well traveled ground the sad lives of mundane middle Americans although the Leopold and Loeb motif is a dark wrinkle I was most intrigued by the piece s formal elements the novel told in individual comic strips done in various styles that serve as homages to pastiches of other classic strips the Peanuts being one obvious example

    Co worker saw me reading this over lunch and commented oh some high level reading huh? because it's got y'know pictures Never mind that it's actually written for adults making it maybe a higher level book than 80% of what I've been reading anyway GrumbleBecause Dan Clowes is not an easy breezy read Ice Haven has a pretty large cast all of whom have their own individual dramas going on and every drama is given the same weight fro

    I don't think I have it in me to review anything by Daniel Clowes It's always a fabulous surreal and every other emotion experience to read his works The same goes for Ice Haven I liked it less than I did Ghost World or Death Ray but it has its distinct charms each so well put on paper that the reader can't help but be
