Logusch, Fiona – Pretend

Website

Pretend

This is one of those cases where the title sums up the book perfectly. This is all about a young girl going out for a walk and pretending that she’s a mermaid. Not to give anything away, but that should be fairly obvious by the cover. Her mother decides to join her, and most of the book is basically them frolicking. There is a conflict too, but it’s the happy times in this that I like. Fiona has worked with Dave Kiersh and it’s obvious that she’s been influenced a wee bit by his drawing style, as she has similar, meandering backgrounds at times, and I only mean that in the best possible sense. Anyway, I thought it was a great comic and I think she has big things ahead of her, as who on earth could go wrong by being influenced by Dave Kiersh? Is it obvious that I’m just a bit biased? Oh well, I think it’s obvious to any regular readers of this site that some people would literally have to poop on their comic before they sent it to me to get a bad review. I’m guessing, based on the size and the fact that the cover is colored, that this is $3. I could be very wrong, but why not send her an e-mail at fionaoksana@hotmail.com to find out for sure?
