New stuff I’ve been reading
“KRAMERS VOL. 9”
This was my most anticipated release for 2016. And I read it immediately after I bought it and never stopped reading it once even to refill my coffee. The best comics were the ones by Corbera, Westvind, and Antoine Cosse. Specifically Cosse’s comic surprised me with it’s exhilarating blaze-of-glory self annihilation analogized to a squashed bug on a windshield, which is an inverted take on a life a meaningless type of story that’s both funny and poetic.
Vol. 9 was more fun to read than Vol. 8, but I would have liked another trolling essay by Kill Rock Start comp artist and renowned trumpet player, Ian Svenonius. If he was unavailable maybe they could have got somebody from Witchypoo.
