Salgood Sam's comics quaterly
John O'Brien, A.J. Duric
Book one of Revolver is a collection of seven short stories, and assorted words & pictures. Exploring themes of mortality, belonging, identity and place. Some are parts of larger ongoing works but all can be read and enjoyed as stand alone tales.
"Salgood's drifting vision has an incredible sense of space and freedom. Your eye moves across the page continuously, an angel floating through worlds." "Revolver plays with how we perceive things, and where we anchor ourselves." - Sherwin Tjia
Though muted and limited in palette, the art demonstrates a level of skill many comic artists can only aspire to. Perspectives are juxtaposed Escher-like adding to the alter-reality quality of each individual story as well as the collection generally. Revolver One feels like a cohesive whole. - Rachel Fenton
"Throughout this issue, you can feel Max Douglas's joy in experimenting with line, tone and page design, in a way that is simpatico with other big names of the small press like Tomer Hanuka or Farel Dalrymple. This is the kind of comics I unashamedly love, dense work by a creator following his vision and sharing the journey with his readers." - John Martz
