Lake Jehovah is a small town in northern Alberta known for its allegedly bottomless lake. It is there that Jay, a genderqueer individual, experiences a crisis of meaning regarding love in the face of a series of apocalypses. Jay's fiance leaves xim for xis old university professor Asterix. This sends Jay into a tailspin, which causes xim to spend the next few months sleeping. When xe wakes up Jay discovers xe has become a small time celebrity for writing an apocalyptic prophesy. The town's obnoxious costumed mailman Greg has been giving tours to apocalypse pilgrims that go by Jay's bedroom window. Two of these pilgrims are Betty and Mack, survivors of the Vancouver Apocalypse, who find solace in Jay's prophesy. Now fully awake Jay seeks companionship with the reviled sadist poet Jackknife who introduces xim to demons and chain-smoking wolves. Things in Jay's world continue to unravel until xe realizes xe needs to confront the Lake itself. Will Jay's prophesy come to pass? If it's all over, did it mean anything at all? Jillian Fleck is a fresh new voice in comics and Lake Jehovah is a breakout book.
