This almost silent comic tells the story of an amateur alchemist and getaway driver for a bank heist. When the holdup goes wrong he finds himself with a bag full of hot cash, orders a build-your-own homunculus kit, and goes on the run. Tessler’s dense and detailed drawings pull the reader into a nightmare world inspired by film noir.
"A tour de force in black and white. Nearly every picture balances a sense of wonder and menace ― stopping you in your tracks even as the plot races ahead." ― The New York Times
