Eschew deploys a truly immaculate, almost inhumanly perfect line to depict us at our messiest and most human. Every story takes an unflinching look at the unfortunately familiar stupidity that comprises modern existence. These are those little moments, when no one is looking, that make you laugh out loud to remember, that you would think twice before sharing and that are the building blocks of wisdom.

The second installment of Eschew, first published by Dylan Williams’ Sparkplug Books, was nominated for an Ignatz Award for Outstanding Comic in 2010, and selected for inclusion Best American Comics 2011.

Rod Lott, of Bookgasm writes:

“This black-and-white anthology goes for the absurd, more often than not, starting with “Flying Squirrel,” in which a squirrel indeed flies, but unwittingly so. It’s wordless, save for one laugh-aloud line at the end... And you’re an asshole if you laugh. Like I did.”

40 pages. 5" x 7 1/2". 2013.

Eschew deploys a truly immaculate, almost inhumanly perfect line to depict us at our messiest and most human. SPACE includes the first three issues of the series, expanded and enhanced, along with a host of rarely seen and never before printed work. Sergel captures life’s little moments, when no one is looking, that make you laugh out loud to remember, that you would think twice before sharing and that are the building blocks of wisdom.

“I don’t know why this series and Robert Sergel aren’t catching more buzz! Or maybe they are and I am just not jacked in (possible but unlikely, as I have my finger on the pulse of today’s youth). Anyway, Eschew offers nice tidy art, nice dry humor, and nice dreary atmosphere. In return, I offer my full endorsement, whether or not that means anything to you.”

Minty Lewis, of PS Comics (Secret Acres) and Cartoon Network’s The Regular Show

Robert Sergel follows the awkward path to greatness with his first graphic novel, Bald Knobber. A middle school boy named Cole delivers a book report on the Bald Knobbers, masked vigilantes from the Reconstruction Era. Unfortunately for him, this thrilling tale of antebellum justice and a corrupt county has an uncanny resonance with young Cole’s real life. Donning a homemade Bald Knobber mask with his cat, Daisy, at his side, Cole sets out to avenge the wrongs perpetrated by his recently divorced parents, his mother’s new boyfriend and the school bully. A mysterious house fire leads to a calamitous, and hilarious, conclusion. Much like the real Bald Knobbers, Cole discovers there are consequences to taking the law into your own hands.

"Sergel’s visuals fall in the same school as Nick Drnaso and Chris Ware (simple lines, marginal facial detail), but he shies away from positioning his characters to directly face the reader, a device from talking-head-style documentaries. Instead, his framing concentrates on creative cropping: a close-up of a hand reaching out from water to suggest drowning, a shot of a coaxial cable connected to convey anticipation, a shoelace being stepped on so the protagonist notices his shoes are untied. Often, the narrative revolves around a single character, so this focus on details shows where Sergel’s attention is going, a method of communicating the subjectivity of experience without spelling it out. Form serves function beautifully."
