Bridge by Matt Madden (Mini Kus! #96)

Madden's timeless black and white tale is a perfect closed circle. Thematically, it's about the stories we tell ourselves to explain away the feeling of being perpetual outsiders, even amid the flurry of kids, career success, travel, learning, and loss. As we grow, we accumulate wisdom, but become echoes of our former selves, yet those echoes and sage thoughts are able to loop back around and inform the experiences that have come long before with new perspective and understanding. Bridge is carefully plotted so that the turn of each page represents the passage of a decade, chronicling the lives of three individuals who follow that path of growth, wisdom, and reflection. The lady informs the boy. The boy becomes the soldier. The soldier warns the lady. Madden's timeless black and white tale is a perfect closed circle.
