Mini Kus! #12 is a challenging work that postulates a sort of internal creationism myth after a lost vessel encounters a small island. It’s concerned with man’s place in the natural world, specifically how we can overlay man-made constructs and ideas onto what we observe in our world. From “bread faun” to “boil man,” it makes you consider how the stories and customs and culture we take for granted all originate. The art is like some bizarre blend of old National Geographic illustrations and some odd comics from the future that (mistakenly) portray today’s existence a couple hundred years from now. For me, I will say that I enjoyed the front of the book on the island more than where it ends up going, but that’s probably just personal preference. Grade A-.
