The first half of this issue, consisting of "A Brief History of the Art Form Known as 'Hortisculpture'", shows Mr. Tomine following in the footsteps of his mentor and role model, one Daniel Clowes, in playfully and inventively incorporating the newspaper comic strip format in to that of the comic book. Tomine has taken the formal replication a bit further, however. Here we have a story artfully divided into four-panel, black and white "dailies" and full-color, full-page "Sundays." Titled "Hortisculpture," the strip "runs" one Sunday strip shy of five full "weeks." The second story, Amber Sweet, is classic Tomine, but... in full color! The issue closes out with two pages of meta-comics, with Tomine ironically inserting himself into the work to provide behind-the-scenes commentary on its creation, his attachment to the "floppy" form of comics (aka comic books), and his feelings of hope, pride, frustration and despair about the very comic you're holding in your hands.
