/lit/, I need you to criticise this passage - I'm deluding myself into thinking it's good. It's midway through a trilogy of parables I'm editing.
Also general critique thread.
"Three years had passed. The infant was master of a dialect and walking, but not of others. His chest was imprisoned by a blue pullover, with the smile emblem of the school he’d just escaped, as he demanded his mother by lobbing a plastic car against the wall. Inside was the family of four, where the ties of natural chaos and learnt order brought feigned happiness to all. Milk curdled as the infant roared against heaven and arose against the playmat town that worshipped him.
He thrusted the sole of his boot against the hillside boxes overlooking the commercial district. Although obscured by their land’s smallness, little people lived in these boxes. These were people who arose at dawn to praise the divine birth of their king and his otherworldly master before starting the day’s affairs in the smog scoured valley. They bought and sold pointless goods believing they were beyond the primitive idea of value by need, but they all needed meaning. They complained of ill-governance but paid for half-truths. Ultimately, they derived all pleasure from what they called the curses of mortality.
Beneath the smog cloud, some had always warned of immediate doom. “We have abandoned the Pantocrater!” was a common slogan. “The Pantocrater’s action heralds his judgment!” was their response to miracles of revived limbs and the sudden appearance of new hillside boxes to house the ever-booming population. “Mass death begins now!” followed the publicly-watched disappearance of prominent agitants for war."

I peeked into /co/ and the air was the wrong color, so I was hoping you could help me in their stead.
I'm interested in reading some graphic novels. Over the past few months I've started drifting away from both reading and drawing, and this seems like a suitable cure for both.
I'd like to avoid the typical comic book atmosphere in favor of something; not necessarily lighter, but warmer. Something with blues and oranges, maybe in concern of the surreal or dreamy with wide panels and pretty girls.
It doesn't have to fit any or all of those criteria literally, I think I'm more interested in the mood than anything else.
I have Amazon up and I'm looking to find at least 4 or 5, so all recommendations are welcome.
