Ugh, halfway through a nervous month previously? I better work on my oil (a bearskin rug, so I can lie on the floor). This is the time for comic publishers to release all their creepy, bloody, and scary books, so you’re spoiled for choice if you’re looking for one of these. Excellent airport horror awaits this week. Or, for something a little more subtle, a thoughtful manga about a girl who grows up to be an artist — but not without some regret.
As always, thank you to Phoenix Comics for helping sort out this week’s new releases, even in the face of unexpected absences. Best wishes for a speedy recovery, Nick!
Approach issue #1
Part of the fun of a good horror story is knowing that even though nothing scary has happened Until nowat some point willthen plunge into some kind of anticipatory state of fear even though, for now, everything seems perfectly normal. the approach It does a great job of invoking the dread “everything is fine but not for long” from classics like the thing And the the shining And the scenery of Pleasure Island from PinocchioA snowstorm has trapped a small group of passengers and airport workers at a small regional airport, and after an unexpected plane crashes on a nearby runway, something troubling appears to have joined them. Most of this first issue is spent on routine blizzard actions, an effective backdrop to the various well-rounded character team grievances. There are only hints of something more sinister coming (up to the last page, which gives a lot of detail), which leaves the reader enjoying a sense of dread and pessimism. If you like this kind of thing.

A melancholy contemplation of loneliness, art, and roads not taken, look back It follows the path of a young girl who grows up to be a teenager and then embarks on a career in manga. Along the way, she crosses paths with a shy fellow artist, and the two find unexpected meaning in the act of creation. Sorry to be so vague about plot details, but there are some twists and surprises that I don’t want to let go of. There’s also a weird… not sure to call it, a daydream? Re-context? An alternate world? Where we see the consequences of the alternative choices our heroine might have made. In the end, the story is a calm, peaceful (and sometimes tragic) interpretation of the power of art to connect us, even across seemingly insurmountable bays. With beautiful art that invites you to stay in moments of calm, look back He is cute, sad and inspiring.
