“Trondheim creates autobiographical sketches with a Seinfeld-ian mania for capturing the quotidian details of normal life, particularly its irritations. [His] light wit and springlike watercolor tones give even the most curmondgeonly observations a lilting and jesting flair.”
So says Publishers Weekly, this week, about Trondheim’s latest Little Nothings volume. Meantime, School Library Journal has this to say about David B’s Nocturnal Conspiracies:
“The real strength of this graphic novel lies in the images. David B. has a distinct style that uses heavy black inks combined with grays and blues. His detailed drawings complement the text and carry it through each panel. The results are captivating. Followers of his work won’t be disappointed.”
Lewis Trondheim’s Little Nothings: The Prisoner Syndrome (which is vol.2) has a review coming from Booklist:
“Trondheim thinks hard about his surroundings and communicates his musings just glibly enough to invite readers to pause and think as well as enjoy his Everyman worries.”
