Difficult Loves by Molly Colleen O’Connell is now available for orders in the DOMINO shop.
$6, 24 pages, 9×12. Color cover, black and white interiors. Two color poster inserts.
Core member of the art collective Closed Caption Comics (CCC), Molly Colleen O’Connell brings us her richest book to date. The reader is at first confronted with O’Connell’s signature fleshy characters, more fully realized and powerful than ever before. Lurking around them this time are snakes—real and implied. The book centers around human relationships, but like O’Connell’s drawings, the simple road is ignored. Are snakes here for their viciousness or for their intertwining personas? O’Connell brings out an endless parade of pet concerns: nail salons, pottery, and strip malls are all here, drawn to the fullest.
Each page of this comic stands alone as an aggressively elegant work for the reader to soak up. Taken together, these pages form an elaborate story and a concentrated work of art that readers will be dipping into long after their first encounter.
DOMINO will be sharing table space with CCC at the MOCCA festival on April 28th and 29th. Difficult Loves, and all are previously published books, will be available at our table.
