Nick's Rainbow Pepsi Blood by Sam Ombiri, $7. Digest size, 12 pages, two colors.

This comic feels like an EC Segar study done in the future and then retranslated into contemporary aesthetics and printing methods, but with a few added layers of obstruction thrown in. In other words, a perfect DOMINO distro item! There is much pleasure to be had in Ombiri's figures, crunchy and splotchy like pure cartooning intended. But there is another world percolating above and below the cartoony surface: ways of drawing and reading comics are tested here, a masterclass on what the form can be in 12 pages.
