Snake Oil #06: The Ground Is Soft

Snake Oil #06: The Ground Is Soft

Product Review (submitted on January 31, 2012):
This one snuck under the radar as a mini with a new title--very appropriate for such an expectation-confounding comic. With its silkscreened covers and challenging storylines that sometimes threaten to atomize into infinity, Snake Oil has always been one to treasure; this issue presents one of its tightest narratives yet, set in a deranged fantasy culture/kingdom. Imagine Dan Clowes in collision with Brian Chippendale, and you’re not far off.
