These were published in CF’s Mere.. I can’t summarize what they do for me. I lent Mere to a friend hoping that she, like me, would want to do comics forever. It turns out that most of these comics are riffs or deadpan jokes that throw back to some genre. Rather than evoke nostalgia, they turn phoniness into an advantage. Even his Kramer’s Ergot story seems to refer to Valentina somehow. I don’t think you can do things nowadays without being retrospective— it’s part of having the past so much at hand.
