Review: NOD AWAY by Joshua W. Cotter

Over on Wink Books, I wrote a short reflection of Joshua W. Cotter's book out of Fantagraphics, NOD AWAY

Nod Away is the first of what Cotter promises to be a seven-volume series. Ostensibly this first volume is a sci-fi story that circles around issues such as the human desire for exploration and connection, the power structure inherent in gender politics, and the gray area created in the intersection between science and morality, but, as the book unfolds, the reader feels there is something more complicated occurring in the periphery. Cotter is exploring profound questions of consciousness itself by creating a story that asks them indirectly.
