Welcome to ClockWorld, an island of an amusement park where the greatest moments in history are recreated. Danny, the naive but loving hero of Dash Shaw’s New School (Fantagraphics, $39.99), travels to Clockworld to find his estranged older brother. There he enters a world as fantastic as it is consumed by the greed and depravities of history. New School is alive with history and pop culture, and Shaw’s use of florid coloring and experimental layering is visually arresting, captivating the eye with its cinematic and expressive pace. This is a great graphic novel for readers who love art as well as comics.
