I am making an effort to put a dent in my reading list, and the most recent comic I managed to check off my list is Michael Neno’s The Signifiers #2.
Michael introduced the psychedelic world of the Signifiers with a quite interesting and visually interesting premiere issue. He moves things along in issue 2 with some details of the life of Splash, who is pretty much the lead character, and who gains a Ypytlic in order to protect himself from the Voyst. Yep, I typed that correctly! The question is: what is the Voyst and is it good or bad? There are some hints among the prisoners in a castle perhaps and a visit to Splash’s Aunt. It’s an intriguing story and I look forward to reading more! There’s also an episode of Landlark, the Heat-Seeking Dwarf, which involves a trippy and perhaps dangerous tapping into the Voyst. Plus, there’s Thelma, the best dog-woman ever! Really! Go check out Michael’s work on his site and enjoy!
