David Collier

From the back cover: "Since publishing his first story in R. Crumb's Weirdo magazine, David Collier has been know for his thoughtful comic essays, often biographies of endearing eccentrics like himself... Chimo is an autobiographical account of Collier's decision to re-enlist in the Canadian army and go through basic training again at age 40, leaving his new family behind. His goal is to get to Afghanistan and follow in the footsteps of artists (such as Alex Colville) who produced a body of work while serving in the Canadian War Artist Program. It is a poignant account of aging and mortality, but in true Collier fashion, digresses into scenes of jumping rope, kayaking in Hamilton harbour, and the story of his childhood hero, skier "Jackrabbit" Johannsen."
