The Adventures of Tad Martin #6 by Casanova Frankenstein. Comic size format, black and white, 60 pages. $6.66

One of the most critically acclaimed comics of the year, and one of my personal favorites as well. Frankenstein brings us into a tense world, drawn like a true underground comic with subject matter to compliment the style. And yet...this comic goes so much farther than other undergrounds while not wallowing in transgression (although there is plenty of that). This is a truly personal work of art, the kind that most auto-bio comics pride themselves on being, yet few actually are. This is a tour de force and worth your time.
