Hyperspeed to Nowhere by Lale Westvind
8$, 28 pages, 8.5x11. Color cover and interior
Im not sure how Westvind produces her work, but in each edition comes out looking more handsome than the last. This one might be the most beautiful of the bunch...a full color affair. I heard it described as a Gary Panter riff, but it reminded me a bit of Spain Rodriguez---but maybe more accurately the artist I always wanted Spain to be: the tough subject matter, tight lines---but something more is going on here. You can't read this book and miss the ambition to wrangle a lot of drawing styles and rich world building into a thundering gestalt.
