Can you make an exciting comic out of insomnia? Kevin Huizenga rises to the challenge as he depicts his alter ego Glenn Ganges wrestling with sleeplessness, trying to trick it by reading a particularly abstruse book, obsessively breaking his past, present and future life into ever more hallucinatory, complex grids, and wandering around his darkened house trying not to wake up his wife. Also: Loose cat action!

Take a sneak peek at the first 3 pages.

#10, Best Comics (First Run or Definitively Collected) of 2009, The Comics Reporter

"...Ganges point[s] to Huizenga's continued evolution as one of the most important young cartoonists working today." – Sequart

"The best [cartoonist] thus far of his generation, Kevin Huizenga, makes amazing comics using a classic everyman, Glenn Ganges." – The Comics Reporter

"...Huizenga, an artist who is more welcoming and easier to embrace than an Adrian Tomine or a Joe Matt, continues to be one of the most exciting voices in any description of what people call comics... Huizenga is able to maturely detail something that's truthful, funny, and gorgeous to look at." – The Factual Opinion
