A miserable little boy goes missing in the small town of Ice Haven. Daniel Clowes, who wrote “Ghost World,” is another artist (like Seth and Chris Ware) who make their drawings ambiguous enough that the story could be taking place any time from the 1950s to the 1970s.

What I liked: The strong, simultaneous storylines and the masterful drawing.
What I didn’t like: Too short!
What I learned: Breaking up a story into comic strip-length pieces doesn’t really hurt the narrative.
Unresolved question: Has the female private detective slept with the whole town?
