Mini Kus! #11 is a forthcoming autobiographical account of how sometimes we just can’t see the forest for the trees, or maybe it’s “the grass is always greener” syndrome. The story reminds us to appreciate what we have in life and to truly be present to experience it, rather than continually longing for some other arrangement which may never come. Valve’s colorful lines and seemingly world-weary existence are portrayed in a genuine and beautiful fashion. It’s a subtle work with an intoxicating aesthetic. While this is largely an aside, I love the diversity of the Kus! line, how they can bounce from publishing an abstract work like Otso to something like All You Need Is Love, truly showcasing the versatility of the medium. Grade A+.
