Page 45 Review by Stephen
Beautifully fluid forms mutating in a colloidal suspension or something.
(I didn't fail Physics but I came close in Chemistry.)
I knew there'd be a substantial, young market for these more abstract, impressionistic / expressionistic comics once collected, and at the time of typing (May 2023) we're already swiftly selling through our second batch.
I experience their execution in the same way I absorb more abstract music videos and Vaughan Oliver / 23 Envelope art. Does that makes snse?
We still have copies of the Gareth's A4 one-shot INTERCORSTAL if you fancy.
The creator/publisher writes:
A collision of the spiritual and the visceral, the heart-warming and the horrific. You haven't read anything like this before.
Explosive Sweet Freezer Razors is a 244 page collection of 10 abstract comics unlike anything you'll have read before. Manifest as paper it has a soft cover and is A5, a mighty slab of wonder. 8 of the comics included are full colour, the other two are black & white.
Each of the stories in Explosive Sweet Freezer Razors is a combination of the fantastic and the mundane, told within and against a background of vivid and uncompromised abstract art.
Some of the stories have previously been released relatively widely; others were released in extremely limited, hand-bound editions; some are being printed for the first time in this collection.
THE BONES OF THE SEA is about the place that exists after the end of the world, and its also about apples, sandwiches, and waiting in car parks.
NOTHING gives us glimpses into the lives of 65 different people, and reality crashing shut after them.
A HILL TO CRY HOME is about ghosts, and baths.
PETALBURN is about the last great night out youll have.
THUNDERS is about having your hair cut, trying veganism, and experiencing time slips after an alien abduction.
MOON PUKE tells the story of Jonathan as he swims in the energy of empty car parks.
THE HUM is the hypnotic and fractured retelling of a totally normal weekend at home.
THE CHILDREN OF THE VALLEY follows a landscape as its twisted and forced out of shape by unseen forces.
In NOT THIS HOUSE youll meet a ghost, and the house that it haunts
And in TUESDAY'S SALTED CURSE youll follow the dance of a group of witches as they finally murder a ruined world.
