Reluctant Oracle #1 by William Cardini. $12. Digest size, 32 pages, full color. 

Cardini makes graphic, obscure, spaced out, Kirby esque, philosophical, poetic bursts of art. His work is always a pure unit of expression, tight and controlled though not austere. Not to be missed by anyone who likes comics that are both within AND apart from the tradition of what came before.
