520    Helen is an amateur bird watcher and naturalist who lives 
       in a rural community in Wales. When a local farmer Bill 
       tells Helen that a "rare bird" named Emrys killed himself 
       at Cuddig farm, she decides to investigate. One of the 
       dogs at the farm tells her, by way of explanation, that 
       Emrys "had no feathers and couldn't fly." She plucks an 
       old cosmetic kit from a dumpster and discovers it belonged
       to Emrys. Inventorying the kit's contents, she finds a 
       spent .12 gauge shotgun shell. Her attempt to learn more 
       about Emrys turns into a journey of self-discovery and 
       ultimately a hard-fought reconciliation with the world as 
       it is. Carol Swain's Gast is the rare kind of contemporary
       graphic novel critics are conjuring when they exult over 
       the promise of the art form; a philosophically mature 
       vision, uniquely executed by an artist wholly in control 
       of her craft. In Gast, Helen's inner life is slowly 
       revealed through a mixture of naturalistic detail and 
       phantasmagoric occurrences.
