Magic Hedge and Other Stories
by Marian Runk
48p, color and b&w, 7"X8.5"
Marian's Magic Hedge collection is a pure autobio arc that's all about the subtle surprise. Starting with meditative and journal-like comics about birding, Runk shifts to a rowdier gear mid-book with a Catholic school girl gay dancefloor bro-down. The final piece, "Bathed In Light" is a lovely reveal, a story about gays, birds, Project Runway and hidden magic. Crafted and solid. -EF
