Jack Staff: Everything used to be Black and White
by Paul Grist (Image, 2011)
Dark-tinged speculative fiction rendered in black and white across 350 pages. Visually, Grist is always experimenting. His blocky, agreeably homespun technique is offset by a multi-viewpoint, intricately non-linear storytelling so oblique as to make following the plot a satisfying act of problem-solving.
