The sixth installment of Or_nge by Nicholas Offerman, features a stand-alone story featuring the character of Megyn, who attempts to escape her multitude of problems by spending a night at a local carnival. Despite her and her friends’ attempts to distract her, Megyn can’t ignore the fact that her parents are separating, and her ex, Henry is not talking to her.
Nicholas uses several different methods of storytelling to capture a moment of upheaval, layering first-person and third person narration as well as a few scenes of no narration at all. Nicholas’ inventive page layout, and reserved use of color makes for interesting storytelling!
