She Has No Head! – Embarrassment of Indie Riches

Tired of a million (mostly) inconsequential zero issues from DC? Tired of the never-ending AvX event?  Here’s a little something for everyone from the Indies…

THE VOYEURS BY GABRIELLE BELL

Every year, one way or another I find myself re-reading Gabrielle Bell’s Lucky.  And I suspect her new collection The Voyeurs will also become a yearly re-read for me.  Full of wonderful autobiographical tales that are equal parts hilarious and insightful, Bell has become an absolute master of autobio comics.

She Has No Head! – Matt Kindt’s Revolver

Revolver.  Matt Kindt (writer/artist/creator).  Steve Wands (letters).  Vertigo.  192 pages, Color, Revolver CoverHardcover.  $24.99

Revolver’s protagonist, Sam, is literally torn between two realities.  In the first reality (which I’ll refer to here as the “original” reality) Sam has a boring totally average existence in which he himself is boring and totally average.  He has a job he loathes, a boss he hates and fears, co-workers that are not friends and are barely co-workers, and a cute girlfriend obsessed with material things and whose job it is to make sure that others are equally obsessed with material things.  Here Sam is miserable and seems intent on doing nothing to change things.  He is almost literally sleepwalking through his life having been lulled to sleep by the consistency of that life and unable or unwilling (or both) to save himself from the meaninglessness.
