Wilson is cartoonist Daniel Clowes’ first graphic novel (that is, it’s not an anthology of a serial comic book strip). It’s about a lonely, unemployed, self-loathing, passive-aggressive sad-sack who goes through life making himself and the people around him miserable. In the beginning, the pages seem to be unconnected, but about a third-of-the way in I had been swept up in the plot, which involves the highly-opinionated Wilson coming to terms with various relatives that he has deeply flawed relationships with.
