But enough of that. On to the review!
The Signifiers is another comic I picked up at a recent convention. It is entirely conceived and crafter by Michael Neno. It looks great! The ink work really catches your eye and the back-and-white printing helps this comic look very mysterious and far-out. Many of the characters are humanoid animals, and they are incredibly visually striking! The stand-out character is the dog with the human face. Or is it a human with a dog body?
Which bring me to the story, which I can best describe as far-out! The world of the signifiers is dark, creepy, and fantastic. There’s some type of psychic energy all around and factions feuding over territory and power. Or at least that’s the impression I get. There’s a lot of mystery and the big question of what the “Voyst” is. There are lines like “Cosmic consciousness in its most essential form emanates from the Voyst” which sounds very freaky but also like something Kirby would write.
Michael has lots of examples of his work on his website, so check out his work! It’s old-school greatness!!
