Something Very Different

This week Gwen and Derek focus their critical spotlight on recent releases from Peow Studio, a Swedish publisher of minicomics and longer narratives. As they point out, much of what is coming out from Peow is very creator-centered, personal, and even experimental in nature. This is a publisher that, while not well-known my many readers, deserves much more attention for the intriguing material that they release. While Gwen and Derek aren’t able to delve too deeply into each of the texts that they discuss, they do give a broad overview of the press, the kind of comics they publish, and some of the defining characteristics they see in their catalog. They primarily focus on the publications Peow has released over the past year and a half, including:

  • Internal Affairs – Patrick Crotty
  • Ripple – Wai Wai Pang
  • Rule Break – Anna Syvertsson
  • Dust Pam – Thu Tran
  • Salmon, Run! – Mackenzie Schubert
  • Stages of Rot – Linnea Sterte

  • Devil Maybe Cry – Patrick Crotty
