From what I understand this is a comic about environmental issues and the effect they have on day-to-day physiognomy (now thems issues). Using the metpahor of the countryside and maternal countenance, Malcy tells his tale with shapes ugly and beautiful. Read this four or five times now and not sure I get it, the compulsion to return is annoying but I believe worthwhile. in the meantime I'll just keep on climbing Lady mountain. A6 size in the 'missive device' (comic-as-postcard) format, costing £1, a reasonable choice for a gift. Created by a man whose understanding of comics as a form is so broad and second-to-none.
