“Just when you think you’ve got it all figured, you find out you’re still the same old baby you always were.”
Between 2019 and 2021, Toronto-based artist and illustrator Patrick Kyle self-published Baby, a series of unique comics pondering existence, meaning, and continuity with an absurdist and compassionate sense of humour. Breakdown Press is thrilled to bring Kyle's playful yet mindful work together for this new complete edition.
Kyle's style is all-encompassing, with overlapping panels, transversal line work, and graphic patterning that force the reader to become a quiet witness to Baby's weird, mildly claustrophobic, and amusing change. Follow Baby as he grows from a rebellious adolescent to an adult, on a quest for meaningful employment (or purpose?)
