Eye of the Majestic Creature #5
by Leslie Stein
48p, b&w with color cover, 6.5"x10"
Hot on the heels of the EOTMC collection Fantagraphics releaed this Spring comes a brand new issue of one of my favorite minicomics, Eye of the Majestic Creature. This time, things take a turn for the worse: even deceptively happy-go-lucky elements like LarryBear's anthropomorphic guitarfriend Marshmallow are getting drunk a little to much. Stein sets Larry's New York life of arbitrary retail and sand counting to the grim realist prose of Dreiser's Sister Carrie. It's a bit of heartwrench punctuated with Stein's unflappable dark humor, bleaker certainly but still brilliant. -EF
