Staff Reviews

I've been a fan of Sergel's for the better part of a decade now, back to the days of his webcomic Idiot Comics. I've always been struck by the way he manages to capture modernity in all its awkward quietness, and Bald Knobber is no different. A short little tale about the confusion of family and growing up that's told with an almost cinematic verve, despite Sergel's pleasingly clean and minimalistic art style. A gem of a graphic novel.

— From Justin's Picks


Middle-schooler Cole's book report on Bald Knobbers, Reconstruction Era vigilantes, bears an uncanny resonance with his life. Donning a homemade Bald Knobber mask, Cole seeks to right wrongs perpetrated by his divorcing parents, mom's new boyfriend, the school bully and his cat, Daisy. Like the real Bald Knobbers, Cole discovers the consequences of taking the law into your own hands.
