And here's another fine NoBrow publication. Mr. Hunter shares with fellow NoBrow creator, Jon McNaught, a great respect for, strong understanding of, and an exceptionally deft hand working with the comics page as a creative unit in and on which to express temporal and spatial relationships that are both informative and aesthetically pleasing. The New Ghost is a welcome addition to this shared perspective. Get an idea of what we're talking about at NoBrow's own preview page for this fine new 24 page deluxe pamphlet comic book.
<<•>> edited & designed by Sam Arthur & Alex Spiro <<•>> Look no further, the brain blasting book to beat is here. Nobrow 6 is a double dose of doppelganger doubling that takes full advantage of the "69" format. 64 double page spreads each tackle this issue's theme of "The Double". Start with Tom Gauld's cover for the "Comics" side and then, when you reach the center pivot – Robert Hunter's "Anchor Point" – you flip the book over mid-strip and then continue with the "Illustration" side, concluding with Gwenola Carrere's cover; or vice versa, if you prefer. The fabulous flat planar color of the Nobrow house style is in full effect throughout, and is, as always, an æsthetic treat. The real thrill here comes from the integration of comics into Nobrow's flagship title. Here's our vote for it's continuance. Contributor's include Kevin Huizenga, Michael DeForge, Joseph Lambert, Luke Pearson, Blanquet, and many other fine comickers, including the pole star in the Nobrow firmament, Jon McNaught. Make sure you pick this up and look through it. You won't want to put it down.
Now out of print. We are down to our last couple copies...
