Yeast Hoist #12 by Ron Rege Jr. $6. 48 pages. Color cover, black and white interiors. Published by Buenaventura.

For my money, this is THE best Buenaventura publication. Yeast Hoist is Rege's loosely defined 'ongoing' series, and this issue is simply drawings (ranging from 1997 - 2002) from Rege's sketchbooks. All of them are...perfect. There's a line in here somewhere: 'the perfect art drawn with the perfect pen.' That pretty much sums it up, Rege as the top of his powers, letting himself simply draw. Buenaventura presents is all with expert execution.
