William Softkey and the Purple Spider
Published by Anthology Editions
9.5"x6", 80p, color, soft cover
Buried deep under sand sits a library the size of a small city, owned by the eerily powerful Mr. Wish and protected by roving bands of toughs and lethal sentient vehicles. When a small but heavy interdimensional spider demands access to the vault, poor William Softkey, with assistance from the gravity-experimenter Gigglewindow sisters, is hired to deal with the problem. Rendered in the artist’s trademark stark linework, against a backdrop of paranoid techno-fantasy, strange emblematic beings, and woozy halftone patterns, William Softkey and the Purple Spider is acclaimed cartoonist CF’s second dreamy narrative published under the Anthology Editions banner.
