The latest Now is here and it looks like another winner! 120 pages of great comics from North America and Europe – and perhaps elsewhere, as well (not sure) – all making their North American debuts, regardless. Arguably the greatest value in comics going. The fact that both of the first two issues have sold out is certainly a strong point in favor of this argument. Don't miss out on this one!
A portrait of the artist as a young woman.
Breakdown sez: "Haifisch’s idiosyncratic, episodic comic chronicles the experiences of a young artist in his formative years, satirising the exclusive, ephemeral and frequently absurd world of fine art. Plagued by doubts and anxiety, the artist is confronted with constant setbacks punctuated by occasional, surprising glimpses of recognition."
165 x 220mm -- 64 pages -- offset printed -- hardcover
Anna Haifisch's portrait of the young artist in situ – in "the art world" – returns in this 104 page full color hardcover. Wacky Hi-Jinx ensue – along with despair, ennui, angst, irony and a healthy dose of the absurd, all rendered in Haifisch's inimitable style.
