the link in yr post isn't going to the right place!

great issue!

i'm stoked to see the abstract comics feature, Tim Gaze has written a killer intro.

Andrei deserves massives props for editing & compiling this anthology, he's really made it happen & it's awesome that comics can push some formal limitations.

for more about abstract comics, be sure to check out the blog:

...also, very excited about Bäckström's essay, my vote goes toward this for some award in honor of best titled essay!!!
