Midwestrn Cuban Comics #8
by Odin Cabal
38p, b&w, 8"x10.5"

Cabal's doing great things with narrative, keeping the drama rich and weird, and the hatchy style vibrates the page along with the story- sort of akin to what the emotional line maximalism of Leah Wishnia's punk comics or Conor Stetschulte's Amateurs. One of my favorite books from this year's CAKE! -EF
