Summary
Assembled from work done in Anders Nilsen's sketchbooks over the course of the year following the death of his fiance in 2005, <i>The End</i> is a collection of short strips about loss, paralysis, waiting, and transformation. It is a concept album in different styles, a meditation on paying attention, an abstracted autobiography and a travelogue, reflecting the progress of his struggle to reconcile the great upheaval of a death, and finding a new life on the other side. The book blends Nilsen's disparate styles, from the iconic simplicity and collaged drawings of his <i>Monologues for the Coming Plague</i> to the finely rendered <i>Dogs and Water</i> and <i>Big Questions</i>. Originally released in magazine form in 2007, <i>The End</i> has been updated and expanded to more than twice its original length, including a 16-page full-color section
