So I picked up this comic (or graphic novel I should say), Curses by Kevin Huizenga. I knew him from the Drawn and Quarterly series, where he’s got this story of not being able to have a kid, and having to pour gasoline in his eyes to see a feathered monkey and completely liked everything about it.
Well! A lot of the stories seemed to revolve around the West Michigan area. Actually, Grand Rapids! It went on to be so specific as to have a story just about 28th street. He even drew the MC Sports store and mentioned Modernistic Carpet Cleaning.
But anyway, it’s a pretty good comic so if you want to feel all special about knowing the areas talked about in a comic, go check it out!
