This comic, expressionistic masterpiece follows the exploits of Mr. Zero, a hard-working, psuedo-Everyman as he toils through his rather inconsequential existence working at a Macy's-like department store. When he discoveres that after 25 years of determined dedication on his job, he will be fired and replaced by a machine, Mr. Zero kills his boss. Mr. Zero is the perfect anti-hero - someone who is unable to understand the extent to which his inability to learn from the mistakes he himself has made. Mr. Zero's life consists of a litany of missed opportunities and disappointments.
