We're glad to report that, balancing out the massive outpouring of classic comics collections, there is also a healthy influx of new, small press and self-published works out this month as well, demonstrating that the riches of comics past are not crowding out the healthy spouts of new comics growth. John Brodowski's weird and wonderful – and largely wordless – self-published comics have developed a small but faithful following here at Copacetic, and we are pleased to be able to offer these no-longer-available issues in this single volume to what we hope will be a wider audience. These are comics that are extremely difficult to write about. What, exactly, is going on in these deftly pencilled pages? Well, what we can say is that the unique pleasure that the reading of this work affords is precisely the evocation of this mystery.
