My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I was just wowed by this story of an artist who makes a deal with death so that he can have powers that will make him be able to do things he's never done as a sculptor before. But this is much more than a Dr. Faustus/The Seventh Seal story (though there are obvious parallels and at least one reference to the chess match with death). Scott McCloud really delves into the difficulty of making good art, and all the turmoils that artists go through in life. Scott McCloud does this in a way that keeps the reader turning the page all the way to the end. This is one of my favorite reads of 2016.
