“Bottled”

By | Nov 13, 2017 | Reviews

With “Bottled,” Australian cartoonist Chris Gooch makes a somewhat frustrating graphic novel debut. Frustrating in that this story of mundane millennial alienation and jealousy escalating into something unsettling, has all of the parts of something really good, something right up my alley; however, these great parts don’t quite click together. But they almost do. Written […]
