Seasonal Shift's sub-title is "Comics 2013 - 2019," and that's what readers will find. While, these are, of course, comics executed and/or published by Albert during those years, one could be forgiven for being tempted to give another, additional reading of the title as indicating that the comics in this collection, taken together, provide a portrait of the shift that took place in Comics during that same period. Food for the thought. Either way, plenty of great comics on hand here. We'll provide some more details soon, but, for the tie being, here's what Breakdown Press & Co. has to say:
'Seasonal Shift collects a selection of comics by Lala Albert, made between 2013 and 2019. Ethereal, unsettling and intimate, these genre-hopping examinations of identity and nature demonstrate that Albert is a master of the formally-inventive contemporary comic.
"An important, long-overdue collection of work from one of our generation's singular cartoonists. Lush, paranoid and visionary comics." - Michael DeForge
”Reading Seasonal Shift is like holding a rare insect in your mouth, its dry wings beating against your tongue and the walls of your cheek, and imagining - in the moments before your teeth come together - all the different ways that it could taste” - Gretchen Felker-Martin
This book is part of the Library of Contemporary Comics, a series of publications collecting shorter works by the best cartoonists currently working in the medium.
