Drawn in his appealing clear line style, each issue of this thrice-annual ongoing series features the serialized “Turtle, turtle” story of an island off the coast of Mexico believed to be a giant living turtle by its inhabitants. “Turtle, turtle” is told from the point of view of Cesar, who, born and raised in the U.S of mixed parents, spends one long summer in Mexico with his grandmother, then returns, later, as an adult. Not exactly a coming of age story, “Turtle, turtle” explores ideas of racial, social, and global identity. Yellow Baby also features stories that are contrastingly very funny, very sad, and very odd, all rendered in a range of methods and styles, while still remaining unmistakably Jed’s.
