There's nothing else like Maple Key Comics currently on the US small press market, as it follows the Manga model of a big, fat – each issue is over 250 pages – regularly published book of ongoing comics serials. Unique, hybrid comics abound in its pages: Science fiction / Teen romance, nautical adventure/romance, funny animal / auto-bio – you won’t find these types of comics together under one cover anywhere else! There are a baker's dozen continuing, serialized tales here, all that began in the first issue, and several of which conclude here, with most continuing on. There are also a few new, stand alone tales by newcomers including Rebecca Roher's "Primordial Soup" and Anna McGlynn's Lynda Barry-esque tale, "Like Water", which, respectively, open and close this issue. Check it out!
