It Doesnt Exist
40p, b&w, letterpress cover, 5.5"x8.5"
Mucha's cartooning at it's most serious and elegant. Vignettes about a worry fortress, a fantasy party and the plights of modern inadequacy that have Mucha paring down her trademark zany tangents to their essence and illustrating them highlight a sophisticated comic architecture. "It Doesn't Exist" isn't a funny or bubbly comic like "Buzz" or "I Hate Moms Cat" -it's a new approach for Mucha and it blossoms here, enlisting her finely-honed comedic language to finesse more introspective story arcs. -EF
