Laurel Lynn Leake’s work has been featured in INK BRICK, Maple Key Comics, and Inaction Comics, and she’s been self-publishing a lot of other work as well. I’m quite fond of abstract and poetry comics and it was wonderful to find a treasure trove of her poetry comics on her website. There this very enthralling fluidity to her work, whether it’s in abstraction or in more conventional narratives. There’s an emotional power to her comics that I find quite appealing.
