Hey, I’m excited to be able to offer some very unique comics today from Richard Alexander. I’ve long been intrigued by Alexander’s cartooning, and I’m proud to be able to share it with DOMINO readers. What makes Alexander’s work so compelling to me is its embrace of totally original formalist ideas (every page is drawn on paper plates, and the drawings bend into themselves, all the while maintaining a strong aesthetic pull) combined with a frankly honest, sometimes shockingly so, chronicle of a persons life. The emotions and attitudes expressed in these comics are strong and might be off putting to some readers. But if viewed as an account of one’s mental life, they are strong examples of comics ability to be used as a pure tool of interaction between author and reader. And, viewed on their own, they are filled with beautiful compositions and inventive drawing.
Here are the issues we have available:
