A short but effective mini comic all about love. At only 6 pages and no staples, this almost got overlooked in the pile of review material, but the contact sheet made me look again and I'm glad I did because this is a well constructed wordless tale that fits love, longing and tragedy together in a satisfying mix.

The art is bold it its restraint, using simple silhouettes and positive/negative space to good effect, defining panels without needing to draw a boarder around each image.

Not sure if they charge for such a short piece, but it is well the time spent reading and would make an impression in any anthology. The ending's a cracker.

In a Word: Clarity.
