BIG PUNK, $5, 5½” x 8½”, full color, 18 pgs.

You will recognize Janelle Hessig’s colorful, cartoony artwork before you recognize their name. Hessig has been doing punk comics, fliers, and album covers since the ’90s. Big Punk is a comic about a punk woman who is sick of the big city and heads out to the woods. After a bout of loneliness, she discovers a love that redneck reality show subjects have been hunting after for years. It is a funny and perverse little comic that you will knock out in two minutes. Crossing my fingers for the teased “Big Punk, episode 2: Homeschool Is for Hippies.” –Rick V. (Janelle Hessig, silversprocket.com)
