Split by a silly center-spread of sea-faring woes by Jesse Reklaw, Papercutter No. 10 is evenly divided between very different comics by husband and wife, both dealing with the bonds that come with a family.
A haunting tormented comic by Damien Jay starts off the issue in which a peasant is visited each night by her deceased brother, Willy. When Willy visits, the rest of the village is put under a sleeping-spell until his sister walks him back to his grave and lays him back to rest.
A hilarious and uneasy comic by Minty Lewis rounds out the issue. This comic is part of her fruit series, in which anthropomorphic fruit work boring office jobs like us, but still possess their fruit-like properties. Apple is lonely, and craving to start a family, or at the very least become of an existing one, which just makes everyone uncomfortable.
These are some solid comics that you’ll enjoy reading more than once!
Nate Beaty provides quiet end pages as usual.
