It was a hunting accident; that much Charlie is sure of. That's how his father, Matt Rizzo--a gentle intellectual who writes epic poems in Braille--had lost his vision. It's not until Charlie's troubled teenage years, when he's facing time for his petty crimes, that he learns the truth. Matt Rizzo was blinded by a shotgun blast to the face, but it was while participating in an armed robbery. Newly blind and without hope, Matt began his bleak new life at Stateville Prison. In this unlikely place, Matt's life and very soul were saved by one of America's most notorious killers, Nathan Leopold Jr., of the infamous Leopold and Loeb.

A complicated narrative story of a young man involved with petty crimes who finds out that “the hunting accident” that blinded his father was more nefarious than his mother led him to believe. The story weaves in sensational crimes and headline news during the early 20th century with illustrations that compliment by using dark black sharp lines that vary in size, boldness and complexity.

Made me feel feelings.

The Hunting Accident is very unique. It is based on a true story. The images help to bring the very philosophical story together.
