The highlight of this issue has to be the cover feature, Graham Annable's twisted tale. It is the only work we can think of that comes close to clothing the corpus of the classic EC tradition in the garb of contemporary comics sensibilities. It delivers a compelling theme with an extreme economy that is simply only possible in comics. It's pretty much an instant classic (apparently, Lynda Barry agrees, as she selected this tale for inclusion the 2008 America's Best Comics Anthology). And that's just the highlight! We also have on hand Elijah J. Brubaker (Reich), whose contribution tells the story of a pair of artists who wander a rainy city looking for beauty, inspiration... and doughnuts. And then there's the one and only Lilli Carré (Tales of Woodsman Pete), who presents a short piece about a man born with a mandolin for a head.
