AKA Retrofit 40
It took a full nine months for this issue to gestate, but Now 11 has at last been delivered, and it's a little bit of everything! While including some familiar names from across the USA and Canada, #11 is quite the international issue, with amazing contributions from Argentina, Australia, Belgium and Mexico making up over half the page count. The centerpiece of this issue is Australian artist, Stacy Gougoulis's "Mandorla". It's 32 pages offer up a philosophically wise and artistically insightful exploration of the ultimately subjective experience of human temporality in a highly informed way that showcases the expressive capacities of comics in a manner that intersects with the work of Chris Ware, Jon McNaught, Eleanor Davis and Kevin Huizenga, among others, but maintains a powerfully cohesive unity of form and content throughout: a masterwork of melancholy. This story alone is reason enough to pick up this issue, but there are plenty more great comics on hand here from all over the creative map as well as the geographic one!
