Tales of the Contrary - reviewed

The July issue of Comics International (#186) has a brief review of Tales of the Contrary. It also carries the full page collective advertisement on behalf of a group of British small-press comic book creators with the strap-line ‘Independent Comics for Independent Minds’*.

“This A4 sci-fi comic, with 20 pages of strip and a six page text story, displays a penchant for the twist ending and poetic justice. The tales of killing, cloning and interrogation are written as if by someone who takes life very seriously. It’s impressively drawn by Bolt-01, with grey tones by Richmond Clements and backgrounds that convincingly evoke the worlds in which the stories penned by Andrew Bartlett are set.” 7/10.
