Fresh Meat Reviews: Hilary’s picks

Hilary Allison‘s picks from the SVA student comics fair Fresh Meat.

Hilary’s Picks.

Sisters & Ice Cream Truck Time by DaYoung Jung.

Here’s a gorgeous twelve-page story about the age-old condundrum: What ice cream should you get?  DaYoung examines motives, resolve, sacrifice and satisfaction (in cuter terms), employing an impressive array of experimental layouts.





A-Girl by Henry Fernau

This is a brief story in a tiny book.  A-Girl expresses her sexual frustration as the only human in a crowd of bothersome robots…. and not once does she appear in a pin-up pose.  Props, Henry, for giving readers this refreshing female subject—not object—of desire.



(F)Art Monster by Kat Fajardo

Here’s an omnibus of four short reads by one of SVA’s most promising juniors-to-be.  Watch a camping rave-dancer get eaten by the moon, become privy to Kat’s most embarrassing secret, and learn the history of New York’s ABC No Rio.






Das Moustache in “The Unstoppable Heartstopper” by Mike Luckas

If New York boxing champion Das Moustache can defeat Pirate Captain Dana (and her cyborg gorilla), she’ll repair the city’s blasted docks.  If not, the city belongs to the pirates!  Expect vibrant color, dynamic sound-effects, and an abundance of muscles and boobs in the fight scene that follows.
