Coming in at more than 600 pages and about five pounds, this is big in size and even bigger in content, the type of comic book that will change your mind about what a comic book can do. Representing 15 years of work by two-time Ignatz winner Nilsen (Dogs and Water; Don't Go Where I Can't Follow), this work features a cast of birds who are perfectly happy pecking at crumbs until, one fateful day, two strange objects fall from the sky (think The Gods Must Be Crazy for the aviary set). How they react divides the flock into two camps. When tragedy strikes, some of the more philosophical birds start questioning destiny, free will, and the very meaning of life. The simple-minded birds never really figure out the answers, but in asking the big questions they encourage readers to come to their own conclusions. Verdict Nilsen's art is beautiful and sparse, but it can be difficult to tell the handful of identically drawn main characters apart, and at moments you wish the plot would move in double-time. Instant gratification it is not, but if you push through to the end, it is well worth it. A great selection for any adult collection.-Ingrid Bohnenkamp, The Library Ctr., Springfield, MO (c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
