Punk comics don't get any punker – or better – than Liz Suburbia's Cyanide Milkshake! Small press publisher, Gimme Action has now brought the entire run* together in this spiffy 176 page softcover collection. These are true comics. Funny, sexy, insightful, energizing – and excellent! The comics that make up Cyanide Milkshake – and all of Liz Suburbia's work – amply demonstrate her strong drawing abilities and firm grasp of the comics form. Unabashed, raw energy powers strong confident lines in the service of well composed pages that flow together like a great mix-tape. Born not long after Love and Rockets made it's debut, her work shows her to be an authentic heir – both stylistically and philosophically – of the original punk comics greats, the Hernandez brothers, extending their legacy into the next generation. And while her work naturally shows the stamp of her artistic forebears, the uses she puts it to, and her artistic voice, are all her own.
*The story behind which is detailed in the all new 5-page comics-introduction that starts off the book.
