Strong Eye Contact by Christopher Adams. $15

104 pages, full color. 9 x 7. Published by 2d Cloud

This is one of the most unique, 'no similarities to any other working cartoonist whatsoever,' totally out of left field books I've come across in a while. I think it's a really strong book with a lot of strange pleasures to it---in one way its like a series of drawn out moments of a silent film star attempting odd sight gags. and at the same time its an amazing collection of eccentric small drawing masterpieces. One foot planted deep within the tradition of gag comics and the other planted far beyond anything else, this is something else.
