Whistles, a clown in the Starlight Calliope circus, was beloved by all. One day an accident nearly cost him his life, and he became exposed to the corrupt underworld of the circus, rife with murder and cannibalism. Forced to flee, he experiences the hardships of the world such as homesickness and prostitution. But his spirit remains bright and optimistic. The six chapter series documents his journeys, and his long quest to return to the circus and his master. Written and Illustrated by Andrew Hussie of Homestuck and MS Paint Adventures, Whistles was his first published graphic novel and it stands alongside other SLG dark humor classics such as Johnny the Homicidal Maniac. Editorial Reviews Review "It's Pinocchio meets Candide meets Kubrick doing funny... Twisted but clever.... the action reaches out and squirts you in the eye." --Mark Moyes, Rue-Morgue magazine "Whistles comes across as one of the strongest and most instantly winning and winsome dark fables I've read since Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, with a similar level of stark and unexpected horror, but a heftier dose of heart and honest character evolution than even that aforementioned classic managed to achieve." --Dave Baxter, Brokenfrontier.com
