The first American collection of Spanish comics maker, Ana Galvañ, Press Enter to Continue is a 96 page hardcover in which a strong, minimal line describes a color saturated space. Its five untitled pieces seamlessly mesh together to create a portrait of contemporary alienation in which traditional human traits like character and physicality are gradually – or abruptly – supplanted by technological substitutes.
The back cover blurb actually does an unusually good job of setting the mood, so here it is in its entirety: "Press Enter to continue. To suffer the fate of a sideshow attraction that has outlived its novelty. To be mentally controlled within the liquid crystal walls of interstellar internment camps. To be humiliated by human – and inhuman – resources. To be blackmailed by computer viruses nourished by trauma. To grasp the malevolence even in the most quotidian details of large corporations. To recognize that the system should fail. To enter a contemporary twilight zone of our collective dread, the familiar unknown of Ana Galvañ. Do not check your pulse. Do not read the terms and conditions. Press Enter to continue."
