Tragic Relief: Revenge!

Revenge! is a swift, violent tale which involves a femme fatale, a man and a shark. Over the eight largely wordless pages, the femme fatale and the man — perhaps with some sort of tumultuous past — are trying to kill one another in a large house overlooking the ocean which is patrolled by the solitary shark. Not to spoil anything, but things don’t end very pretty.

Frakes employs a loose, spontaneous style in the work which gives the impression that she’s just having fun with what she’s doing here. As loose as it is, the work tells the story clearly and doesn’t become muddied down by illegible, over inking. Perfect work for its tiny format. (Matthew Daley)
