Salmon Doubts by Adam Sacks

Standard

Sacks, Adam. Salmon Doubts. Alternative Comics, 2004. ISBN 978-1891867712. 128 pp. $19.99

***

The life cycle of a salmon serves as a metaphor for the human condition in Salmon Doubts. Fish struggle to survive hatching, make connections, be unique, explore the world around them, hit puberty, try to fit in, find a mate and return home to die. Focusing on basic questions such as “Why am I here?” this philosophical tale with its themes of identity and purpose in life will have special appeal to teens. Very highly recommended – a real quality addition to your graphic novel collections.
