Sometimes Macanudo is standard comedy fare with a gag and a punchline; at other times, it’s lyrical and philosophical; and at yet other moments in other strips, it’s a weird, surreal treat. The one thing it’s not –not ever – is dull or mean. Rather, it has an air of surrealism and childlike wonder that gives it a timeless quality. It is deadpan and wacky and has the added bonus of featuring Henrietta, a wildly interesting child and a great girl character, with her teddy bear Mandelbaum and her cat Fellini. But it’s not only Henrietta who shows up repeatedly and sometimes she doesn’t show up for a while, because Liniers is thinking about other things and he needs other cool characters to situate and embody them.

From graphic artist Matt Huynh comes an Australian Gothic haunted house story of abandoned lovers in a deserted land. Morgan, with little left to lose, kidnaps his own daughter and flees town with his mistress. When they are separated in a storm, he’s forced to take shelter in an abandoned hotel where he is greeted by the suspicious generosity of a stranger haunted by a long departed lover. Little by little he pieces together the mystery and of his hostess and her lost love.
Painted in acrobatic lines and pulsing visual rhythms, Huynh’s latest original offering, ‘Magpie, Magpie’, delivers romance to its horrific extremes with a hypnotic, ringing lament in ink and pulp.
