So Buttons No. 12 by Jonathan Baylis

November 29, 2022 in Reviews

So Buttons No.12 is a 28-page, full color, digest size, autobiographical comic written by Jonathan Baylis and illustrated by Josh Bayer, Kevin Colden, TJ Kirsch, Miss Lasko-Gross, Rachelle Meyer, Ben Passmore, Josh Pettinger, Carol Tyler, Noah Van Sciver, Lance Ward, Tony Wolf, J.T. Yost, Lucas Eisenberg-Baylis, and Devy Goldstein. Cover by Jesse Lonergan. Published by Alchemy Comix.

In spite of never being nominated for an Eisner, and never sporting a curly-que mustache, Jonathan Baylis does lead an interesting life and through the pages of “So Buttons” he (with a little help from friends) tells the tales of his adventures! In this issue of his autobiographic comic series Jonathan delivers the details on meeting Ethan Hawke, Sir Patrick Stewart, Ian MacKaye, and Chris Claremont! But wait, that’s not all, Jonathan also ruminates on sharing the same birthday as Kerry Washington, Johnny Rotten, and Grant Morrison…okay, that doesn’t really qualify as adventurous, but Jonathan’s six-year old son did discover the word “shit” in the pages of So Buttons! Believe me (speaking as a family man that draws cartoons for HUSTLER), when your kids discover your work it can lead to some hilariously uncomfortable adventures in family conversations!

Each story Jonathan shares in So Buttons is uniquely illustrated by a different artist that brings their individual style to the pages. The result is a collection of entertaining stories backed up by a diverse group of talented artists with their own distinctive approach to graphic storytelling!

Dalf-Lo: A Cereal Worth Killing For! by Luanga Nuwame

February 11, 2022 in Reviews

Dalf-Lo: A Cereal Worth Killing For! is a 57-page, 8.5 x 0.14 x 8.5 inches, horror comic written by Luanga A. Nuwame, illustrated by Christina Deljanov, and edited by Matthew Varallo. Published by Zelpha Comics and Collectibles.

This is a strange and gruesome story about a killer cereal turned serial killer! Unbeknownst to the public at large, a malevolent creature lurking somewhere between reality and fantasy, has tapped into the minds of our children! This evil being has not only endeared itself to the young but also conspired with the corporate world to further its reach into our very grocery stores! Now, with its brightly colored packaging and child-like innocence, this beast has won its way into countless homes and hearts…only to possess the children and eat the parents! I got to give it to Lu, this dude can come up with the most uniquely twisted stories!

Dalf-Lo is a brutal comic that opens the door to a hidden world of horrors disguised as cheerful treats. The method Lu takes at spinning this yarn is somewhat unique in itself. Rather than lay this out like a traditional comic, Lu has created more of a storybook. One page contains sequential images with some dialogue, while the accompanying page is a complete narrative account from the main character’s perspective. I really like the inventiveness shown in the storytelling. I also really like the overall story and the art that supports it! Luanga explains up front how this story formed and that’s always interesting to learn, but I’m more intrigued now to know where is it going?!

The Domesticated Afterlife by Scott David Finch

January 3, 2022 in Reviews

The Domesticated Afterlife is a 6 x 9, 285-page, black and white (really grayscale), fantasy graphic novel written and illustrated by Scott David Finch. Published by Antenna Press.

This is my first comic review of 2022 and it’s a whopper! I used my holiday break to dive into this nearly 300 page graphic novel and what a perfect read it was for the occasion! While the family was out skiing and snowboarding, I was cozy inside watching the snow fall in northern Arizona and losing myself in this fascinating tale!

In a world where humans no longer rule, canines, felines, and chickens represent the new social order in a consumer based society. The story begins with two creatures pondering about the ease and luxurious promises of domesticated life while one creature frees the other from a catch. The catch the creature is being freed from is an anchor, and with its freedom the ensnared creature promises to take the other animal inside the fence where rewards of domestication reside. After a short transition we join two canines now on the other side of the fence and trying to adapt to domestication. The two labor under the supervision of cats, who themselves are directed by chickens in a glutinous life of consumerism where constructs of artificial happiness are ever present. As the canines experience loss of meaning and purpose, the ruling chicken class grow increasingly dissatisfied with commercial offerings and always want for something new and different. No longer able or encouraged to identify with their primal urges, the main canine character becomes plagued by a subconscious realization that can only laugh at the absurdity of the situation.

The majority of the story takes place onboard a magical ship moored in a consumer’s reality where everything is motivated by want, but the ship is capable of transporting the story’s characters to a better place! The art is intentionally rendered in a cartoonish style with the occasional panel featuring realistic depictions of animals and nature to emphasize arcs within the story. The entire saga is a magical journey that spans the breadth between life and death, and provides a glimpse at what it could all mean. This is a great fantasy read with a moral at its core!

Methods of Dyeing by B. Mure, Published by Avery Hill Publishing

December 1, 2021 in Reviews

Methods of Dyeing is a 92-page, full color, perfect bound, mystery comic written and illustrated by B. Mure. Published by Avery Hill Publishing.

More continues to expand the Ismyre universe in this newest edition to the fantastical series! A prominent visiting professor turns up dead on the grounds of a university, but was it just an accident or…murder?! An investigative rodent and a custodial amphibian set out to find the answers while the university’s dean and the local Chief of Police appear to stand in opposition to their efforts!

Mure uses a combination of pen and ink and watercolor washes to illustrate this colorful tale of “Who Done It?” The story is well paced and delivers the somewhat dark subject matter in a lighthearted, almost whimsical manner thanks to the art.

Building 11 by Ronald Hicks

November 24, 2021 in Reviews

Building 11 is a 12-page, full color, digest size, silent comic zine created by Ronald Hicks.

Silent comics can sometimes be hard to interpret, but I’m going to give it a shot. Building 11 opens with scenes of smoke rising from both a rural house and a factory. Above it all an alien spaceship looks down. As the seas become polluted and humans blindly follow whatever instructions they are given, the real culprit behind industrial pollution and the downfall of humanity is revealed!

Ron does a great job establishing the setting and mood of the story. His illustrations lead the visual reader through a progression of worsening situations to a climatic end that also serves as a wake-up call to all of us! You can contact Ronald Hicks about Building 11 at
