Posted on Jun 15, 2018 in Blog

Diabolique Magazine has a feature on Rokudenashiko’s ever relevant What Is Obscenity? The Story of a Good For Nothing Artist and her Pussy.

Soft X-Ray / Mindhunters Reviewed

Posted on Jun 15, 2018 in Blog

Ryan C.’s Four Color Apocalypse reviews A. Degen’s “magic” Soft X-Ray / Mindhunters.

“Fast and frenetic and at times frazzled, to be sure, this is a ‘romp’ in the truest sense, every page promising delights, delusions, and dementias hitherto unforeseen—and, crucially, delivering on those promises, plus interest.” — Ryan C.’s Four Color Apocalypse

The Comics Journal Reviews A Western World

Posted on Jun 13, 2018 in Blog

The Comics Journal reviews Michael DeForge’s latest collection of short work A Western World.

“For converts, the appeal here may be in the details, the minor changes, in addition to what concerns of theirs they find reflected. For newer readers, the book makes a fine introduction to a cartoonist who expertly blends form and subject.” — Greg Hunter, The Comics Journal

Somnambulance Reviewed

Posted on Jun 8, 2018 in Blog

The Comics Journal reviews Fiona Smyth’s incredible career-spanning comics collection Somnambulance.

“Each overstuffed, vibrating, oversexed panel seems to freeze and burrow into the page or into your skull, distracting you from the next image, which, in turn, distracts you from the next, and the next. These are comics in which the panels don’t so much work together as lovingly fight for dominance.” — Noah Berlatsky, The Comics Journal

The Ideal Copy Reviewed

Posted on Jun 7, 2018 in Blog

Ryan C.’s Four Color Apocalypse reviews The Ideal Copy the latest Double+ Adventure by Ben Sears!

The Ideal Copy proved to me that the scuttlebutt I’ve been hearing the last few years is absolutely true — Ben Sears is a cartoonist who intrinsically understands what younger readers want in a story, but the tent he’s hosting his party in a big one, and there’s plenty of room in it for us old-timers, too.” — Ryan C.’s Four Color Apocalypse

Somnambulance in the News!

Posted on Jun 1, 2018 in Blog

Ryan C.’s Four Color Apocalypse reviews Fiona Smyth’s Somnambulance and The Toronto Star names it one of the best new graphic novels!

Somnabulance, is more than a simple omnibus collection, it’s an important piece of comics history that, one hopes, will introduce its author/subject to a wider audience than she has ever enjoyed in the past.” — Ryan C.’s Four Color Apocalypse

“These are feminist comics, for sure. There’s love, sexuality, gender and style on every page in images that draw you back, again and again. The images and stories are often challenging, but that’s part of why they’re great art.” — Mike Donachie, The Toronto Star

Soft X-Ray / Mindhunters Reviewed by The Comics Journal

Posted on May 30, 2018 in Blog

The Comics Journal reviews A. Degen’s colourful assemblage of cultural flotsam and jetsam Soft X-Ray / Mindhunters.

“Though Alex Degen’s comics are crowded with weird superheroes, poorly wrapped mummies and giant self-improving automatons—as well as lots of statues, which are often smashed to pieces—piles of dead bodies appear, too, sometimes covered in blood, and serve as a reminder for parts of Darger’s work.” — Oliver Ristau, The Comics Journal
