Rob Clough has a great review of the latest Sundays anthology - he likes the piece I did:
He pretty much got what I was aiming at - the back and forth of the water in the sea, the waves crashing and the sliding water on the shore. I'll hint at a secret - there's a reference to a famous poem in there too 9and it isn't Apollinaire). I don't have the piece online yet but I'll post part of it soon.Unsurprisingly, the best strip in the book is Warren Craghead’s “(new, old)”. He was one of the originators of comics-as-poetry and this particular piece is a wonderful fit in an anthology full of such stories. It also adheres to the anthology’s theme as it depicts the tide receding at a beach, with each page serving as a single panel showing the passage of time. Each page reveals more and more of the beach and its denizens, which he depicts with simple figures that almost look like a bundle of Ed Emberley-style drawings. In the midst of these figures, Craghead inserts a poem about the rising tide and the sounds it makes, which shows each letter rising, falling, and crashing like the surging water. It’s a lovely, evocative story that stirs all of the senses using the simplest of building blocks to create a complex reading experience.
