This graphic novel tells the story of Jack. Jack is a young man whose partner Susan is a month away from giving birth to their first child. They live in Tigg's Bay and Jack works as an underwater welder on a nearby rig. This is where Jack grew up and came back to after university. But he is still haunted by his father's disappearance on Halloween when he was just a child. But does his obsession with the past mean that he has lost sight of his present life and the future it holds? This novel follows Jack as he looks back and finds that the answers he really seeks are in the life he now lives with Susan.

I don't know what made me pick up this book because I hadn't heard of it. I'm usually attracted to the art in a comic and this art turned me off at first. But I stuck with it and grew to enjoy the rough art. The words and art work well to draw one into the story. It sets a melancholic mood that's almost overwhelming. Underwater Welder is well done and I highly recommend it.
