ICYMI -- Small Press Comics Criticism and Whatnot for 1/9/17 to 1/15/17

Highlighting some great small press comics criticism being published, as well as other random things that have caught my eye over the past week.

COMICS CRITICISM

* John Seven's review of Jillian Fleck's LAKE JEHOVAH, "a portrayal of what it is like to be overwhelmed by the invisible and burdened by the incoherency of the universe."

* Sarah Miller parses "the tender and tragic" LETTERS FOR LUCARDO by Noora Heikkilä.

* Ardo Omer reviews Richie Pope's FRONTIER #13: FATHERSON, which leads her to write, "There's a specificity in the expectations that crafted a father and his father before him that will follow the son after him. I like to think the comic offers a different way of being by opening up our eyes to the nuance that was always there."

* Rob Clough uses the word "bonkers" in his review of Anya Davidson's LOVERS IN THE GARDEN and talks of the "unstated theme" of guilt in Leela Corman's WE ALL WISH FOR DEADLY FORCE.

* Marykate Smith Despres' short review of KINDRED: A GRAPHIC NOVEL ADAPTATION.

* Not Small Press -- but I wanted to include a link to Tom Spurgeon's write up about TEGAN O'NEIL'S REVIEW OF MARVEL'S CIVIL WAR 2 COMICS solely because of the final sentence of his second paragraph.

WHATNOT 

* Adam Griffiths interviews JB BRAGER and features some images of his amazing work.

* Arnar Heidmar's THE "REVEAL" OF TRANS CHARACTERS IN COMICS.

* Sarah Glidden's comic for Tablet Magazine, A TEMPLE IN TIME.

* Andy Warner's comic for The Nib, THE VOTING RIGHTS ACT WAS GUTTED. HERE'S WHAT HAPPENED NEXT

*Christian Lorentzen's CONSIDERING THE NOVEL IN THE AGE OF OBAMA.
