Patience is a psychedelic science-fiction love story, veering with uncanny precision from violent destruction to deeply personal tenderness in a way that is both quintessentially “Clowesian” and utterly unique in the author’s body of work. This 180-page, full-color original graphic novel affords Clowes the opportunity to draw some of the most exuberant and breathtaking pages of his life, and to tell his most suspenseful, surprising and affecting story yet.

It’s hard to call Patience a love story. It’s a story about regrets, a heteronormative unhealthy relationship, and time travel (of course) as the protagonist tries to find the person who killed his wife. It’s an interestingly compellingly weird story that’ll keep you guessing what Clowes will throw out next.
