I just read Jetty #4. It was my first encounter with Rio Aubry Taylor's work. It's quarter-size in black & white with glossy paper, bound by staples.
I like the robots, the metaphor, the storytelling, the emotions. I like the format, the drawings, the length, the depth. It's long enough to engage but not too big a commitment.
I felt myself relating to the main character, and I liked that. Oh, and psychic carrier pigeons are the best. There's some humor.
This is not the kind of thing I usually read. I stick to perzines and poetry and memoir a lot. The sci-fi aspect is not part of my normal diet, but I liked the taste. I found Jetty #4 satisfying. Thank you!
