Underwater no. 3 by Chester Brown (1995)

Underwater was planned as a story of the central character’s life development serialized over many years, but the depictions of an infant’s perceptions and experiences baffled many readers. Brown also ran into creative problems with the story and abandoned it after three years and eleven issues. It was a sheer stunner, though, grippingly strange yet often intelligible and even familiar.
