We live in a world plagued by bad dreams, dull lives, the ravages of time, video games, the misinterpretation of historical figures, relentless pranksters, and zombie films. And thatís not such a bad thing when seen through a glass eye. Glass Eye is a black and white independent comic published by Blind Bat Press. Mark Innes is the publisher/editor and he has compiled short works of several fine creators into the kind of anthology only an independent comic can publish. I am very impressed by this debut. All the stories have their own voice and distinct feel and pacing, and each warrant several readings. Thereís an on-the-edge rawness displayed here. The tales donít lose direction, they draw you in, then bite with a point. I knew I was hooked when the worms in the first story started talking amongst themselves. And the rugged, rocky, untarnished-by-man landscape of the dinosaur world on the back cover took my breath away. Glass Eye is a book worth checking out.
