See You Around The Shop--Ed
"Hedra" Image: This feels like an art house science fiction silent movie in the best and least pretentious way. The panel layout is perfect. Capturing time, a single step stretched out into heartbeats. A cosmic journey reduced to a single page while still enveloping a lifetime of exploration. War. Love. Rebirth. If you're interested in something both challenging but approachable, familiar but strange. You would be doing yourself a disservice to ignore this book. 8 polyhedrons out of 10
"Lost Soldiers" Image: Reading the first few pages, I rolled my eyes a bit and fondly thought back to watching some forgotten war movie with my Dad, hearing him remark that war movies shouldn't be so artsy fartsy. I pushed through and was delighted by the sort of gruff, colorful and mundane language that we associate with sailors and soldiers. I never served, and I don't know if the writer did, but this feels authentic in a way that the sanitized action of blockbuster Hollywood does not. It's not gory, but there is blood and guts, it's not visceral though it is intimate. Interestingly it may be a murder mystery in reverse, but also the tale of two old cowboys making one last round up. If you like a little artsy fartsy mixed with your war stories you should pick this book up. 8 lost friends out of 10
