Milk Teeth #1
by Kate Lacour
20p, color, 6.75"x10.25"
Lacour blends the brutalities of mythology and nature into a tight comic fixated on ruthless femininity and anatomical detail. It's also a comic that wears its influences on its sleeve, half-stylizing itself to suit the fauna. I would say those choices work to a certain point, but also toe the line with contrivance. Where this comic truly shines is in its narrative remagining of the unreal - envisioning the tooth fairy as a parasitic wasp, or cherubic putti as operating with the biological processes of song birds. Milk Teeth excels at this kind of conceptual grafting in unexpected and thoroughly satifying ways. -EF
