The town is full of some hyper-eccentric characters, and part of the reason they really stand out is because Tyler Boss has really grounded the visual pacing of the story into the slow pace of the town Joe lives in. There’s an ennui that’s settled in over this neck of the woods, an ennui so deep-seated that no one really has noticed just how odd their community is. With her friend missing, Joe is starting to notice.
Tyler Boss has captured the character of Joe so very well - someone who knows they deserve more, they just aren’t aware of it yet. Joe is clever in the most irreverent ways. I laughed out loud more than once at her shenanigans. She’s also frustrated, as any teenager would be, because she doesn’t necessarily know what she wants. She is the great conundrum of teenage-hood, and she’s remarkable. Joe is everything you need and want in a story like this. And Dead Dog Bite is everything I need and want in a story like this.
