    brooklyn NEW YORK

    25 year old dash SHAW’S bottomless belly button, published by fantagraphics, tells the story of the looney family as they come together one last time at their beach house before their parents divorce. 720 pages packed full of angst, humor, and sex with a few architectural plans thrown in. the plans are deployed to illustrate the looney beach house as well as the dynamics playing out in the family over the weekend. a family drama interwoven with moments of falling in love, falling out of love, and falling apart. dash’s realism is simple but compelling as he sprinkles surreal moments throughout the book such as the son, peter, who has a frog head or the sister claire’s permanent white gloves. he employs a structure which repeats similar scenes causing the characters emotions and reactions to be more fully exposed over time. he also does a series of stunning pages which catalog types of sand, fighting, water, and tears.
