Summary
"Surrounded by the disparate energies of family, history, and nature, alternately bemused, befuddled and antranced, this Everyman vaguely pursues an undefined pilgrimage to an uncertain shrine. In the early panels, at the first campsite, we can recognize the father, the mother, the son and the daughter. Gradually we are introduced to diverse figures from Western mythology, Big Foot, the Indian, human spirits (à la Dante) stuck inside trees, anthropomorphic mountain shapes, and a host of haunted wolves, dogs and natural emanations will each alert our nervous systems that larger forces do accompany us on this latter day comedic journey into unknown territory ... On one hand it might be possible to think of Roy de Forest's work as a twentieth-century response to the nineteenth century's Henri Rousseau. There is a shared hallucinatory delight in liberating characters and landscapes out of their conventional shapes and behaviors. Yet De Forest appears interested here in a much more complicated, multi-noted unraveling of human drives, foibles and aspirations"--A Note on the Work by Stephen Vincent, series editor
