Graphic shorts in a JimThompson vein.
"Abandoned Cars" is Tim Lane's first collection of graphic short stories,noir-ish narratives that are united by their exploration of the great Americanmythological drama by way of the desperate and haunted characters that populateits pages. Lane's characters exist on the margins of society--alienated,floating in the void between hope and despair, confused but introspective. Someof them are experiencing the aftermath of an existential car crash--thosesurreal moments after a car accident, when time slows down and you're trying todetermine what just happened and how badly you're hurt. Others have gone off thedeep end, or were never anywhere but the deep end. Some are ridiculous, othersdignified in their efforts to struggle to make sense of, and cope with, theabsurdities, outrages, ghosts, and poisons in their lives.
