Fütchi Perf by Kevin Czap is an exciting exploration into science fiction and comics! The place, Cleveland! The time, the future! In this future, you’re best friends live just down the street. Your community is welcoming to old friends, and new transplants. The government and the media are accountable to its citizens. Social media is a breeding ground for support, not anonymous vitriol! What if you were exposed and welcomed into a network that had deep racial and gender diversity? What if you felt safe among friends and strangers?
Drawn in an energetic line that flows across the page, and printed in vibrant pinks and deep blues, Fütchi Perf is a beautiful comic with a beautiful message. Eschewing a direct narrative, Kevin took his storytelling cues from music, imagining Fütchi Perf as an album, and each vignette, a song. The focus is emotion, and the reader’s interpretation is as important as the author’s intent.
“Fütchi Perf’s impenetrability is an effective & generous trick.”
-Eleanor Davis, The Comics Journal
