Machine Gum

Witty, twee one panel comics including zombies, lesser known villains, punny animal jokes and word associations. A highlight is the list of “words you may despise,” complete with matching nonrepresentational images–a series of hairy, squelching doodles that seem to be an attempt to capture a viewer’s feelings about words like “swab” or “jammies”. A clever, well drawn and sometimes sweet collection that I connected with right away. (Sarah Pinder)
