Description

Core member of the art collective Closed Caption Comics (CCC), Molly Colleen O’Connell brings us her richest book to date. The reader is at first confronted with O’Connell’s signature fleshy characters, more fully realized and powerful than ever before. Lurking around them this time are snakes—real and implied. The book centers around human relationships, but like O’Connell’s drawings, the simple road is ignored. Are snakes here for their viciousness or for their intertwining personas? O’Connell brings out an endless parade of pet concerns: nail salons, pottery, and strip malls are all here, drawn to the fullest.

Each page of this comic stands alone as an aggressively elegant work for the reader to soak up. Taken together, these pages form an elaborate story and a concentrated work of art that readers will be dipping into long after their first encounter.

“Unapologetically sad and angry and strong. Difficult, yes. Love, yes.” –Sean T. Collins, The Comics Journal

24 page 9×12 black and white magazine with color covers. Two color poster inserts.
