Bittersweet Romance #1
by Victor Cayro
Published by Drippy Bone Books
26p, color, 8"x11"
Cayro's style of maximum overdrive pagefill gets slathered in the grossest palatte of hard candy colors. Barely legible beneath the swaths of veiny muscle is a story about a codependent ree-lay-shun-shippe betwixte an abused blonde sweetee and a messed-up mcnugget. This comic certainly complicates the pastiche of power fantasy which I always associate with Cayro/Bald Eagles' style while preserving the tendency for convoluted narrative-each page is a stew in the S. Clay Wilson sense of the word.-EF
