Days of the Bagnold Summer

FREE READ Õ PSSBIGCARBOW.XYZ ò Joff Winterhart REVIEW ☆ Days of the Bagnold Summer Her Joff Winterhart perfectly captures the ennui the tension the pathos and yes the affection of this mother son relationship Already well known for his animated films like Violet and Turuoise he here shows himself to be a comics author of extraordinary tale. I feel like I have to ualify this review because the rating does not reflect the book s uality but my own reaction to it I m a 28 year old man who has read hundreds if not thousands of comics and my tastes are wide ranging from manga and anime to DC and Marvel to indie comics from Drawn uarterly Fantagraphics Top Shelf Image Dark Horse and everything in between So please don t think I m marking this down because there isn t a masked vigilante with a cape as the protagonist But I think this is a comic book for middle aged and older mothers who probably don t read many comics Days of the Bagnold Summer is the story of six weeks in the summer which Sue a 52 year old single mother who works as a librarian and her 15 year old metalhead son Daniel spend together It s a subtle story told in 6 panel per page vignettes that comprise an accurate and moving portrait of the kind of relationship middle aged mothers and teenage sons have The book reminded me of when I was a teenager though I wasn t into metal nor did I wear a hoody and Daniel s behaviour toward Sue was at least in part familiar It s observations are spot on and the book overall is a true slice of life But Oh GOD it s soooooo DEPRESSING Joff Winterhart really went all out to make Sue s life so miserable She s 52 but looks older and she really hasn t aged well She was never a beauty but at 52 phew And she wears massive sweaters and giant glasses I can already feel female readers turning on me as I write She s alone with her son reminiscing of the times when he was younger and they had a amiable and communicative relationship but now he s distant Her husband left her for a younger attractive woman She doesn t have a significant other She doesn t have friends She doesn t have a fulfilling job She s alone ALONEAt this point I thought enough please Joff Winterhart give this poor woman something anything good But he keeps going delving into her youth and giving her an abusive alcoholic stepfather a boyfriend who went on to kill himself friends who used her and a tremulous marriage to a shallow man The only good thing in her life is her son who doesn t want to know her This book is ridiculously sad and maudlin Poor Sue no wonder she s depressed Reading this I was beginning to feel that way too and then when their dog dies and Sue can t stop crying I was actively looking for my noose It became so overwhelmingly sad that I actually began to think Winterhart was going for a comic book version of a Thomas Hardy novel Have you read Jude the Obscure That scene where the son murders his siblings and then hangs himself is rightfully hilarious because it s just so over the top Or maybe my mind just snapped at that point Either way Bagnold Summer isn t uite that but it is gloomy under a seriously mean cloud Even in the benign scenes like when Sue s listening to the radio in her car singing along to 70s song eating a toffee the scene ends with her pulling out a filling She just can t catch a break You re a cruel man Winterhart I don t know why other reviewers have said this book is hilarious they must all be sadistic andor like me retreated to crazyland to survive the rest of the book Believe me when I say I enjoy gloomy books and that I don t prefer books to have happy endings just true ones Some of my favourite novels have downright miserable finales like Orwell s 1984 Steinbeck s Grapes of Wrath Fitzgerald s Great Gatsby and the aforementioned Thomas Hardy But I think what made it worse was that Sue is a doomed character who doesn t deserve her fate but she s still never going to be happy The one good thing in her life Daniel is going to leave school soon leave her and probably visit her a couple times a year And that s Sue s lot She runs down the clock working in the library and then dies It s just too sad too hopeless I desperately wanted Winterhart to give Sue something positive that wasn t connected to her son but he doesn t Tough luck SueThis is a fine comic in fact I m glad it was nominated for the Costa Award it s good to see well crafted indie comics breaking through into the mainstream and for the artistry in this book it s well worth the maximum rating But I can t give it because I struggled to read it It s too miserable too sad and I was glad when I put it down because I didn t have to spend time in Sue s grey world any Good news though if you re a middle aged mum there s a comic written just for you that understands what it s like to raise a teenage son Everyone else just be good to each other ok Things aren t that bad
