I’ve long failed the challenges involved in keeping up with the latest speculative fiction, but I’ll make the extra effort to hunt down and give a shout out to the likes of Cody Goodfellow with his latest, The Flying None. A writer who is not only difficult to define, he has actually concocted a body of literature all its own independent of horror, science fiction, Bizarro, etc. Such an immense imagination and talent is hard to confine to the written word, so Betty Rocksteady‘s unsettling whimsical retro art accompanies this one. Her art is what happens when Al Colombia has a nightmare about Betty Boop who tears her face off to reveal Camille Rose Garcia, though that only approximates the images Rocksteady creates. She’s also a fantastic writer of the odd and uncanny in her own right. Greatly anticipating this one.
