I'm not going to resist comparing this to the latest sports-themed S! anthology from kus, because they're both gorgeous petit international anthologies with an exciting eye for new work. Plus Colibri #5 is also sports-themed. Whut!?
My favorites here are a hot, strange color strip from Gabriel Corbera, some design freak antics by Sergei Puyol, and an aerobic workout from an artist I've never seen before - Jessica Boston- who's got a immediate, zine-y linestyle with an eye for capturing expressions and a goofy distaste for drawing hands. Wins. -EF
