Product Details

Praise

“…Essex County delivers a collection of characters so genuine that by the end you’ll swear they’re real.” —Complex, ranking Essex County as one of “The 25 Comic Books You Need To Read Before You Die”

“It is a wonderful, thought-provoking, lovingly-produced work of fiction. I’m still not sure that this review does the book justice. I honestly cannot recommend this book enough.” —Pajiba

“Lemire’s portraits of people are honest, and sad, and are full of broken dreams. All of these characters are living lives different than what they expected, and yet none of them really give up. And that is why a comic like this is so important – it is far more aspirational than a Batman story, even though no one in this book could do what Bruce Wayne does. But all of us can pick ourselves up, shake off the dust of disappointment, and try to live the best lives we can.” —Multiversity Comics
