Garbage GN (2016 Conundrum Press) comic books
1st printing. Written by Robin Metcalfe. Art and cover by Mathew Reichertz. Garbage is an architectural-scale series of panels that transform a gallery into a comic book. Each "page" of the story pops with color off the wall, unfolding using the common tropes of comic books. Taken together the paintings tell the story of neighbors in Halifax's North End and a mysterious couch which shows up one morning on the narrator's front curb. Garbage collects these paintings into a graphic novel with a commentary by curator Robin Metcalfe and introduction by comics academic Benjamin Woo. Softcover, 8-in.x 10-in., 48 pages, full color. Cover price $20.00.
