It Disappears GN (2004 Digest) comic books 2002-2004
1st printing. Story and art by Nate Powell. It Disappears follows a boy on a trip that takes him instantly into a terrifying old age and a bizarre otherworld accompanied by a strange mutating animal.

But Powell also offers glimmers of hope that human interaction and history can somehow transcend the corrosive effects of time. Softcover, 5 1/2-in. x 8 1/2-in., 72 pages, B&W. Cover price $7.95.
