Another Glorious Day at the Nothing Factory
216p, b&w, hardcover with cut paper cover, 9.5"x6.25"
Franklin's graphic novel Another Glorious Day at the Nothing Factory is the story of a collapsing marriage and the impulses that guided it. Told in silhouette, it draws its powers from a gestural language that reminds me of Genevieve Castree's figures while making use of tricks and perversions of the silhouette format- akin to Kara Walker's scalpal-sharp wit, though employing them toward a softer narrative. It's a saddening story, the protagonist's hairy, detail-obsessed perspective entrenched in a deep ennui it can be hard to peel back from.... Spinning webs out of thought trails, crumpling up unfinished poetry, losing touch.
