Optical Sloth Review


Below is a recent review from Optical Sloth of the first issue of Moral Geometry.

Moral Geometry #1

Wow. You know those reviews where I wander around a bit, rambling about various things before concluding that I don’t know what to say about a comic? There, I’ve just saved you three minutes of your life. I might have a point or two to make, but overall I rarely have any idea what to do with mostly silent comics involving widely interpretive art, or stories that are meant to be visually expressive more than they’re supposed to make any kind of literal sense. There are four pieces in this comic, and I’ll continue making a fool of myself by breaking them down. Note: the vast majority of my observations will be nonsense. Moral Geometry deals with a masked man, his dinner companion, a spoken monster, and death itself. The Birthing Process is the shortest piece in the book, dealing with the title subject and a profoundly creepy mother. Medicine deals with a struggle with a snake-like creature, the loss of a hand, and growing a new hand that is a pill-dispensing, happy monster. Finally there’s Rubber Face, which at least has words to give me a fighting chance, and it deals with a man putting on his rubber face, saying all sorts of things to a woman on the bus, getting shot in the head and having the result cause a bus crash. It’s not even fair to make this complaint, but the comic also literally has a weird smell about it. Like burning plastic maybe, or one of those scratch and sniff things gone bad. Overall, your mileage will vary with this one. I prefer my comics to make a little more sense, but if you prefer more of a challenge or enjoy trying to untangle interpretive pieces, this one may be right up your alley. Some of the individual panels of the comic were stunning, the problem for me was that when you put them together to make a story it had a tendency to splinter apart a bit. That website of his has more samples to give you a clearer idea of what I’m talking about, as I’m very aware that this is mostly going to sound like nonsense.

The Comics Journal Review


There's a brief review of my comic Moral Geometry #1 written by Rob Clough on the Comics Journal website. Here's the link and review:

http://www.tcj.com/minicomics/lightning-round-short-takes-on-various-comics/

"Moral Geometry, by Sean Andress. To use the word “visceral” to describe this relentless stream of body-horror images would be an understatement. In a series of brief vignettes that touch on birth, death, and disease, Andress creates chills by inverting the possibility of human intimacy as a series of predatory and cannibalistic encounters. The final story, “Rubber Face”, takes this idea to a new extreme, as a rubber-masked figure first acts as the bus passenger from hell as he relates a disgusting story, only to see the old woman he sat next to pull out a gun, kill him, and transform into a destructive monster. The story and issue end on a note of fiery nihilism, and the swirling, blotchy images make this a ride that is difficult to forget."

Thanks Rob for taking the time to review my work. If anyone is interested, you can buy Moral Geometry #1 for $3.00, with free shipping, directly from me, or at www.SeanAndress.Etsy.com or on ebay under my user name: AndressArts. Issue 2 is finished and should be printed up in Oct.

PORTAL




This is a new mini-comic/zine that I created recently as a cheap, short introduction to my work. It's 8 pages and contains a comic preview and some stand-alone illustrations. In the future, I intend to publish more bizarre experiments in this book like short stories, collages, photos, this n' that etc. Anyways, this is for sale at a whooping 1 dollar with free shipping worldwide at www.SeanAndress.Etsy.Com. Thank you.
