Genre notes: memoir, nostalgia

Boulet here draws an affecting remembrance of what it was like riding in the back of a car during a nighttime roadtrip, paying careful attention to how much of a prominent character that Light plays in such circumstances.

Boulet waxes nostalgic but not, I think, treacle. And in his reimagining of that world, I find reference to my own experiences. In this, Boulet not only makes a competent comic but offers his reader something more valuable, an unbidden chance to trigger (hopefully) warm memories from childhood, when the world seemed so different from how it looks to the grown and matured human.

This will take between 1 and 2 minutes to read.
