This 200+ page square format book, designed by Jordan Crane and published by Bodega, is the first in a projected series of a lengthy post-apocalyptic tales of the struggle to survive. It also serves to announce Bodega's arrival as the heir apparent to the now defunct Highwater Press, as this book bears many of the traits associated with Highwater releases. Previously their activites vis a vis Highwater had been limited to distributing the remainder of the catalogue, but with the release of The Mourning Star, it appears that Bodega has assumed the mantle of publishing as well. We wish The Mourning Star success and welcome Bodega to the fold of small press comics publishers. TEMPORARIY OUT OF STOCK.
Here we have 120 pages of comics that stand a good chance of intriguing quite a few more readers than they currently are (at least around here). Readers of comics by the Kramers crowd – specifically, C.F., B.J., and Sammy H. – as well as Chester Brown fans mourning the lack of new work, and members of the Theo Ellsworth Army, all stand to be pleasantly surprised by Mr. Moynihan's work in Follow Me, which is, technically, the third part of The Backwards Folding Mirror (we're out of the first two parts at the moment, but we'll see what we can do about getting them back in stock; that said, this one will stand on its own). Check it out and see what you think, here.
by Kazimir Strzepak The second volume in an ongoing series, this one is, like the first (which we've still got around here somewhere), a fat, square, Jordan Crane designed book packed with alternate universe action. This work shows some affinity to the work of Fort Thunderers Brian Chippendale, Chris Forgues and, especially, Brian Ralph, in its themes and visual vocabulary, but it is a quite a bit more accessible to the uninitiated.
