CARTOON DIALECTICS #2
As the planet balances on a razor's edge, the end of the world, our world, is not theoretical anymore. What will it look like? What will it feel like? Only through comics can we hope to understand the next stage of human development. It's the black-pilled, exhaustive, post-crisis, all-apocalypse issue. Explore: extinction events, the nature of nature, and the typical post-apocalypse scenario. An eschatological tour de force by Tom Kaczynski.
GINSENG ROOTS #6
The stratification, planting, and growth cycles of the ginseng seed parallel the seasons of childhood. Ginseng berries are gathered in the last week of summer, just before school resumes and brings with it the awkward transitions of adolescence, sexuality, and friendship... or a parental decision to homeschool. Before planting, ginseng seeds are doused in bleach and fungicide-a purifying ritual of sorts-like baptism-which Craig and his siblings undergo to be cleansed of sin.
