    This is a pleasure to read. I love the art–interesting to see you working in a different, more impressionistic style. Great storytelling too.

  2. natsch

    Cool! Definitely takes me to another place. Love the world-view drawing (with cows) and the coloring.

  3. Tim Hamilton

    Yes, what Joan said. More of that art style would be a great thing! This was a nice view into another world. Almost journalism in a way. I’m sure you have many other stories like this to tell.

  4. Michel Fiffe

    You definitely have more stories like this under your sleeve, I know it. It is your duty to document such affairs. Especially the one that involves Frida (right?), a ball, and a dirty nail.

    You bring great artistic depth with this chapter, an unprecedented move given your usual larger than life appeal. With the “Down to Earth”, you deliver greatness, and we are richer for it.

  5. Bertozzi

    You are an awful tease–this should have been sixty pages.

  6. Muddy

    I like this one Si, nice to the point little essay style piece.

    The art style reminds me of another 2000AD artist. LOT different from what we normally see from you.

  7. josh

    Wow, Simon, brilliant stuff!! Beautifully told and rendered (for some reason, I particularly love the panel of Mr. copying movies from his TV). The artwork is exquisite! As Nick said, 60 pp. of this story might do it justice.

    Some day over a beer I’d love to hear more tales of your life in far-flung places.

  12. Verna D'Alto

    I thought I would not read one more thing tonight. I am getting blind from being tired. But reading Simon’s piece about Next Door Neighbor, was so refreshing and peaceful. I haven’t finished Lily MacKenzie; but I will do that when I am awake.
    Thanks Simon for this beautiful piece of work that was also beautifully illustrated.

    I smoked for 12 years and I stopped just one day. It’s three a long time now I am not smoking and I am very joyful. The issue is that many companies never want you to stop smoking us they earn each and every time you endeavor to. So everyone tells you that it is really so hard to quit. Forget it, it truly is not, you have got to feel nad you win.
