Sphere Fear by William Cardini, mini size, 12 pages, color, $5

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. This is a particularly strong outing from the author, not to be missed by anyone who likes comics that are both within AND apart from the tradition of what came before.
