Former INT Graduate Joe Kessler is back with a killer new comic, Windowpane

Remember our old mate Joe Kessler? ‘Course you do. He was one of our Graduates way back in 2010 and a prodigious cartooning talent. Since we last met Joe’s been embroiled in the creation of a new anthology of comics, a 44-page screen printed beast that he’s named Windowpane. Within its glossy pages are no fewer than seven brand new and original stories rendered in Joe’s distinctive style – fluid organic shapes interspersed with complex multi-point perspective.

If you’re a fan of surreal, darkly-comic narratives then we can’t recommend this enough.The stories range from the tangential and humiliating realisations of a wet dream to disembodied voices narrating a cinematic panning across frames, all of which are consistently engaging.

If you’d like to peruse this new publication in the flesh then Joe’s got a show on at Protein’s Hewett Street gallery from November 22. We’ll definitely be heading down, and for more than just the free beers.
