The following five-page sequence, the art above and the panel in this morning's CR Magazine posting are all from The Mother's Mouth, former wunderkind Dash Shaw's latest project for Alternative Comics. It will be out in the early Fall. Shaw's last book, Goddess Head, was a frequently stunning journey into comics' formal properties, the meanings of marks on a page and the freedom one has to shape reality with line and space. If a significant number of those elements find their way into this latest book, it should be one of the more compulsively readable books of the Fall. I'm told a solicitation for Mother's Mouth will appear in the very next Previews, so start bugging your local comics retailer now.
