DOLL GN (MR)
Doll is celebrated cartoonist Guy Colwell's (Inner City Romance) darkly satirical take on patriarchal ownership, dehumanization, and sexual objectification. When an artist crafts a lifelike sex doll for a disfigured, middle-aged virgin, it soon takes on a lurid life of its own. Like an erotic Frankenstein's monster, the mannequin brings out the basest instincts in each person it crosses paths with.

OUTDOORS GN
(W) Yuichi Yokoyama (A/CA) Yuichi Yokoyama
Yokoyama Yuichi, critically acclaimed for his gekiga ('dramatic pictures') comics further
pushes the boundaries of what comics can do with Outdoors. The acclaimed artist has a clear
fixation with sound and time and an unbelievable eye for bringing such abstract concepts to life in panel form. Yokoyama uncannily shows the passing of time, suggesting that we should simply see things without labelling them. If he were a musician, he would be John Cage.

AFTER MAN ZOOLOGY OF FUTURE HC
(W) Dougal Dixon (A/CA) Dougal Dixon
First published in 1981, After Man is paleontologist Dougal Dixon's vision of an 'alternative
evolution': one without mankind. In the foreword for this edition, he notes, "the book was about the natural forces of evolution, and man ... had too much of an influence .... With the removal of this interference I was able to let nature get back to work". While some of the creatures seem fantastical, others don't seem so very far-fetched. Dixon: "There are now the
walking bats of New Zealand ... (and) then there are the snakes in Mexico that live in caves and snatch flying bats out of the air, just like 'The Anchorwhip'".
