I Feel Machine is a timely comics intervention into our ever more technologically interfaced and mediated existence. This anthology is edited by Julian Hanshaw, who also has contributed one of the six comics pieces created especially for this 152 page, full color, French-flapped softcover volume. In addition to Hanshaw, the all-star line-up of contributors is: Shaun Tan, Tillie Walden, Box Brown, Krent Able and Erik Svetoft. The works range from fable to fantasy to science fiction to horror, including mash-ups of some or all of these. And yes, these are all new works appearing here for the first time. The Shaun Tan story, it must be said, is an instant classic. It's so good that it seems likely to us that it will not be long before it is issued as a stand alone book, to bring it to the wider audience it surely merits. But you can get it now, along with five other great works, for what will be close to the same price of this hypothetical Tan volume. Nice, right?
