Ferrick's strange comic of an ex-bird Lumpy and a visiting arachnid friend is sad and spooky and unlike any other comic I can think of. Panel images are framed in the architecture of the house that Lumpy has been sequestered away in, depressed and casting off bird-hood, and it takes a minute for the drawings of a beakless bird to become legible. The friendship between the odd-looking creatures is melancholic and it grows in organic, mossy ways: dealing with grief, depression and assisted suicide - not a lighthearted story in any way, but eloquent in its construction. -EF
