Product Details


“The most spectacular episode of The Twilight Zone that was never produced. I really, really care about the people in this story… And I can pretty much guarantee you will too.” — From the introduction by Damon Lindelof (LOSTStar TrekPrometheus, The Leftovers)

“With The Underwater Welder, Jeff Lemire has created a moving, brilliant, and fiercely original work about loss, longing, and love. Full of piercing moments that will stay with you for long after you’ve finished reading, The Underwater Welder is a testament to the basic truth that down in the depths or up on land, there’s nothing more haunting and wondrous than the human heart. A masterpiece of visual storytelling.”  Scott Snyder (BatmanWytchesAmerican Vampire)

“Lemire’s stylized art and inventive panel structure is the perfect vehicle for his well-told story, and the tale’s poignant moments make the moments of desolation even more heart-wrenching… A beautiful, moving, wholly satisfying story about fatherhood and growing up.”  Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“[Lemire] has not lost his ability to pack an emotional wallop.” — George GustinesThe New York Times

“A striking evocation of the Canadian Maritimes, and a moving meditation on what haunts us and how we struggle to keep those specters at bay. And the use of ink wash has rarely been put to more apt use.” — Dana JenningsThe New York Times

The Underwater Welder… is all kinds of wonderful. Buy it. You will wet yourself with tears, your brain will spin from masterful storytelling, and you will love it.” — Jeff JensenEntertainment Weekly

“Haunting… Underwater Welder is just the right blend of action and abstraction, and greatly enhanced by Lemire’s ability to signal movement, time and distance through clever arrangement of his panels on the page.” — Cory Doctorow, Boing Boing
