A roly-poly man of mystery, Wimbledon Green has leveraged his considerable wealth to become...the world's greatest comic-book collector! But who is this controversial geek legend? Auteur Seth (Palooka-Ville) relaxes his trademark preciousness to create a sketchbook-casual work that constructs (and deconstructs) its central figure through a rich mosaic of testimonials and short stories. Deceptively simple, Green is a wistful, whimsical meditation on identity and nostalgia.
