It’s here! – the latest hand printed risograph comic book from Lale Westvind. The story that unfolds here is an interior journey to the core of being. It is also, simultaneously, a "road" map that shows the way there, in a demonstration of the power of comics to reveal hidden passageways. Lest this description lead you to anticipate a dry exercise in intellectual gamesmanship, let us waste no time in disabusing you of this notion: Printed in blue ink on pink paper wrapped in a duo-tone cover printed on heavy cream stock, Yazar & Arkadas ("writer & friend" in Turkish, FYI) offers up 32 blazing hot 7” x 8 1/2” pages crackling with high-voltage comics energy. Combining a firm grasp on classic “Golden Age” science fiction visual tropes with a keen insight into their psychological underpinnings, Westvind here forges a singularly personal mythographics in the service of illuminating a fierce vision of desire. Readers will be effectively transported to the “Lale-verse” wherein they will witness the pursuit of passions and the ecstasies of understanding as aeons are collapsed into moments… and then it’s time for tea.
