In this week’s collection of The Lighthouse in The City, Karl gets a case of COVID-induced paranoia. PLUS! Thoughts on getting out and smelling the ozone, the blankness of existence in isolation, and creepy hugs.
The Lighthouse in The City is a daily comic from Karl Christian Krumpholz (30 Miles of Crazy!, The City Was Never Going to Let Go, One Minute to Wonderland) that began at the start of 2020 to document his wife’s then-upcoming surgery and recovery. The comic continued as issues of social isolation in society became forefront in everyone’s minds. The title comes from the idea of feeling isolated in an incredibly crowded place.
You can view new pages daily on Karl’s Instagram and Twitter accounts and past installments at his website.
There are now five collections of The Lighthouse in The City available, collecting comics from January 2020 through March 2021. The first four books are available from Birdcage Bottom Books, and the fifth volume (January 2021 – March 2021) is now available from Kilgore Books. All volumes can also be purchased on Karl’s Etsy page.
