Planet Named Desire #7 by Joe Marshall
Iâ€™m a sucker for a good autobio comic; Iâ€™ve said it time and time again. Iâ€™m especially a sucker for the ones that are by people who usually write fiction, as itâ€™s a rare glimpse into their personal life. There are three stories in here, all about Joe and what makes him tick. The first one is about how he draws bigger women because when he tries to go skinny they look sickly (and he goes on about how women are smarter than men), the second one is about how he doesnâ€™t own a TV or VCR and prefers nature, and the third one is about the birth of his new son. He manages the difficult task of not being preachy really well, as it would have been easy for him to condemn people who donâ€™t appreciate the outdoors or donâ€™t agree with his viewpoint on women. Itâ€™s a good issue, he should try rambling like this more often. He also sent a few more back issues with this one, and Iâ€™ll get to them one day, but he has a diverse array of back issues, and thatâ€™s only in the few Iâ€™ve seen. Itâ€™s always good to see somebody whoâ€™s not afraid to experiment. These are cheap comics too, itâ€™s worth ordering a few.
