Before I open the doors for the first time I want to give a huge Thank You to Gabe Fowler at Desert Island Comics. Thanks for all the help, the warm welcome and having faith in me! #desertislandcomics #bestcomicsstoreinnewyork A photo posted by Quimby's Bookstore NYC (@quimbysbookstorenyc) …
Ritual #2 The Reverie
by Malachi Ward
Published by Revival House
24p, b&w, 9"x11"
Ward's covers always draw me in with their science fiction meltdown sensibility - the comics inside are a different flavor though - much more restrained, social dramas with strong Tomine/Huizenga influences blended with sinister forces leaking in around the edges. The weird is here, but I think I'm always surprised that Ward never quite lets it destroy the clean Box Brown-y linework. -EF
