A violent drama unfolds as two weary soldiers fail to adapt to civilian life after returning home from a tour of duty in Afghanistan. Neglected by the government and with no heroic memories or loving family members, they seek solace in alcohol, drugs, and nihilistic hedonism. Constantly haunted by nightmares of their recent tumultuous pasts, they desperately struggle to stay on the surface of reality. Part of the Nobrow 17x23 series.


"Greatest Comic of All Time"-Matt Seneca, Comic Book Resource, Robot 6 blog

"Mikkel Sommer's Obsolete, itself the product of the hugely exciting transatlantic incursion of U.K. publisher Nobrow, is perhaps the most masterful piece of English-language work by a Scandinavian artist yet (a Dane, in this case)."-Matt Seneca, Comic Book Resource, Robot 6 blog

"Obsolete is a staunchly formalist comic in disguise, one that pushes the art form through the wringer in order to communicate what feels like a whole novel's worth of story in a few pages."-Matt Seneca, Comic Book Resource, Robot 6 blog

"Sommer starts his book at rock bottom and then drills into the firmament itself, plumbing the depths of despair and inhumanity with colors so crisp and lines so appealing that we're left wanting to take the journey again and again."-Matt Seneca, Comic Book Resource, Robot 6 blog

"The set design, of-the-moment Scandinavian crime fiction crossed with US newspaper headlines, is wonderfully considered for both maximum impact and staying power"-Matt Seneca, Comic Book Resource, Robot 6 blog

"Obsolete is that rarest of things: a debut masterpiece, a piece of work so fine that it's hard to imagine how its creator could improve on it from here. Hopefully the English-speaking world will find out soon."-Matt Seneca, Comic Book Resource, Robot 6 blog
