Salmon Doubts - Adam Sacks

At my last trip to the library, I picked up a big stack of graphic novels, mostly ones I hadn't ever heard of. This was one of them. Sparely illustrated, it's about a school (is that the right term?) of salmon which has just hatched and is making its way upstream to spawn. We get to see a few of their conversations, such as doubts about whether it's better to spawn and die or head out to the ocean. There's not really a unified plot; it's more of a collection of scenes, but it had its entertaining moments and was certainly different subject matter than most comics.
