review 1: I'm normally a little wary of totally silent comic books. There are very few people who can pull off that trick of creating a compelling and engaging story with no words at all. Jim Woodring is one of those people, and his protagonist Frank (an anthropomorphic creature who look...

review 1: The line work alone makes this a marvel, but it is particularly fascinating for the little story of love and loss it relates, but it is especially fascinating for the way it complements and completes Congress of Animals, which was a bit of a puzzle plot-wise before. I think Fran ...

review 1: Jim Woodring is among my favorite authors; I could stare at his drawings all day, everyday. Despite its seeming abstruseness, the Unifactor maintains an internal logic which grounds the comedy as well as the despair of the Frank books -- and, of course, the aesthetics of the worl...
