Contango, You: Drawings Early 2010

(http://www.jwlkpress.com/) Ja$on and Mahoney deliver two beauties -- minicomix without any actual comix with printing and design that has no "mini" about it.  Mahoney's "Contango" is a throwback to mondo underground comix of the 60s; trippy, drugged out affairs where sketchbook scratchings reveal the keys to the universe.  "You" is downright sober compared to it. With its heavy, intense explorations of fonts, drips, weirdness and helmets Ja$on is definitely working -- diligently -- towards something. But what? What??!!?? My brain is healthier and more damaged for seeing these.
