Jordan Crane - Uptight 2 & 3

Look how beautiful the cover is for Uptight 3! It's lovely. It was great to read some old formatted style proper comics for a change instead of graphic novels. I was reminded of how much I enjoy the comics format like this. They are both very good comics with a great mix of short stories about relationships that reminded me a bit of Adrain Tomine, families, and one about kids exploring a freezer and finding a monster, along with their talking cat! So a good mix of stuff. Highly recommended. The drawings a bit like Kevin Huizenga but with lots of interesting swirly shapes to show movement and wind blowing past.
