I think this must be the first issue where Seth doesn’t feel the need to show his protagonist nude from the waist down. He did it in every previous issue at some point or another.
Honestly, I can’t remember anything from this issue and I just finished reading it a minute ago.
It ends with an extremely trite reflection on memory and I now wonder if it ever occurred to Seth his readers might be familiar with Proust and his madelines. Oddly, it never occurred to me Seth might not be familiar with him.
The more I read Palookaville, the less likable I find Seth–the character. He’s an annoying, pretentious hipster. Maybe my biggest problem is the job thing.
Seth never mentions working. He just magically has enough money to travel on jaunts. His character seems to spend his entire day doing nothing.
And he’s terrible to his girlfriend.
