Frogcatchers follows a man who mysteriously awakens in a strange hotel, where he finds a young boy who warns him about the dangers of a king of frogs. To describe the plot further could spoil the ending of this strange, dreamlike comic, which offers a meditation on opportunities lost and fleeting memories. The book’s surreality makes time distort–it feels like a slow and meditative work, but its 90-plus pages are over in the blink of an eye.
