This installment of Seth's critically acclaimed one-man anthology features an autobiographical comic about his childhood, part four of his long-running Clyde Fans serial, a photo essay about a barbershop he designed, and a comic strip about the art of barbering. "Nothing Lasts" revisits Seth's childhood in 1960s Ontario, with a special focus on the salvation that he found in library books and drugstore comic books. Drawn in the sketchbook style Seth popularized in Wimbledon Green and The Great Northern Brotherhood of Canadian Cartoonists, "Nothing Lasts" offers a glimpse at the agonies of adolescence for a shy, often alienated, small-town teen. The Clyde Fans chapter included here shows the conclusion of brothers Abe and Simon Matchcard's first lengthy conversation, and Abe's pensive, self-questioning mood as he drives back to Dominion to meet up with his old flame, Alice. Rounding out the collection is a photo essay on Seth's wife's barbershop, the Crown Barbershop, and a short story in comics form about barbering. Palookaville # 22 displays the range of Seth's cartooning and design career, and is a thing of beauty from cover to cover.
