Highlighting some great small press comics criticism being published, as well as other random things that have caught my eye over the past week.
* Bob Levin reviews TURKISH TRILOGY by Wostok and "friends" which sounds absolutely bonkers.
*Rob Clough takes a look at the minicomics of CATHY HANNAH, who uses her comics "not just as a kind of self-therapy, but also as a powerful feminist manifesto rooted in vulnerability."
* Rob Kirby reviews THE BEST WE COULD DO by Thi Bui, a timely piece that "depicts, with unsparing candor, the multiple traumas associated with being forced out of one's country into the unknown."
*Minneapolis-based small press publisher 2dcloud is running its SPRING 2017 CROWDFUNDING CAMPAIGN. No other publisher is taking the kind of risks to put out the kind of beautiful books 2dcloud is. YOU SHOULD SUPPORT THAT SORT OF THING.
* Speaking of 2dcloud, Philippe LeBlanc interviews MAGGIE UMBER about her latest book, Sound of Snow, which is offered as part of the Spring 2017 Collection.
* Phoebe Gloeckner interviews JULIA GFRORER
* Rosie Knight's THE SELF-FULFILLING MISOGYNY OF "SEMINAL" COMICS.
* Philip Graham's STUCK INSIDE OF STOCKHOLM WITH THE NOBEL BLUES AGAIN
