Second Thoughts by Niklas Asker

I really enjoyed Second Thoughts by Niklas Asker on an initial level. It’s quirky smart story of misguided love. Asker sets up a great story in a style similar to state side cartoonists, Nate Powell and Farel Dalrymple. He really plays with the black and white work bring the characters down to a basic level. Asker leave allot to the readers imagination to put together parts of the story in their own heads. it’s something I really enjoy in a cartoonist. It is a similar flavour in vagueness to someone like Gipi or Simon Roy, but using a completely different genre. The main fallback is that it is too short. I am curious to see what he can come up with when dealing with a longer story and has more space to play with.
