Two new reviews by by Justin Giampaoli at the Poopsheet Foundation for the first two volumes of my mini comic Stranger Two Stranger, which illustrates Craigslist missed connections from Detroit, New York, Chicago, and San Francisco.
Here’s a snippet from the review for Volume 1:
This isn’t autobiographical, more biographical I suppose, but like good autobio comics, the observations catalogued here provide commentary about daily life, which illuminates the universal human condition, ideally causing us to consider our own actions in introspective fashion. Stranger Two Stranger is well-drawn, and an old-school, made-it-at-Kinko’s, honest-to-goodness, hand-stapled, DIY mini-comic. It’s a fun first effort that succeeds. Grade A-.
Here’s a snippet from the review for Volume 2:
I was pleased to see Hendricks use heavier paper stock for a better designed cover, and a couple of pull quotes on the back, upping his game with nice small moves. It’s refreshing to see someone just get it, with discernible actions toward improvement…some of these are so odd that you just can’t make this stuff up. For some reason, I enjoyed the post about someone wanting another party to come and kill a spider for them at 1am. Not only does the post get an actual reply, but it’s an alternative solution that seems to shake up the worldview of the original poster. Grade A.
