A dreamy, haunted catharsis of personal grief, exquisitely drawn in a series, rhythmically laid out in third-, half-, full- and double-page illustrations -- 236 pages worth -- accompanied by minimal, oblique text. Somewhat reminiscent of work by Hans Rickheit, Zak Sally and John Hankiewicz.

This 40 page comic book is printed entirely in red ink on newsprint bound into a textured cardstock cover. While it is indeed a comic book about how to make comics, it's likely that it is not what you think. How to Make Comics is more about how to prepare your self and soul for the arduous journey that comics making is. It is filled with full-page single images with text that engage the literal, figurative and metaphorical modes to provide a guide for The Way of Comics Making. Check it out.
