Long Gone Comix #3 by Samuel Benson. $7. Magazine size, 24 pages, color cover and center spread, black and white interiors.

Benson serves up some crunchy, storytelling here. The ambition to bring us into Benson's urban, crumbling and thoughtful universe pours off the page. I was instantly pleased with the richness of Benson's world, and reading it felt like a rush of all the good qualities of classic Evan Dorkin: story story story, characters becoming dear (or repellent) through their inky performance on a dense page. Good stuff, go grab this.
