Straight from Latvia to you – it's two small but solid slabs of full color comics! As per usual, this 162 page mini-comics-sized anthology is themed, and #16's theme is Villages. Given that this is The Baltic Comics Magazine, it should come as no surprise that the largest share of its contributors are from the countries in the region, most notably Latvia and Finland. S! takes contributions from all over, however, and in these pages is work from the rest of Europe, as well as from the Americas and Asia. Most contributors are unlikely to be familiar to Copacetic customers, but there are exceptions: #16 includes regular Comics Workbook contributor, Oliver East and 2013 Comics Workbook Competition bronze medal winner Evangelos Androutsopoulos. So, while you may not be familiar with most of the artists whose work is presented in the pages of S!, the inclusion of these artists should give you an idea of the type of material to expect. This is a great little book. Make sure to check it out!
