And My Also (2002) comic books 2002-2004
By Jason Sacher. The first full-length book from longtime Meathaus contributor Jay Sacher. Rendered in lush ink wash reminiscent of the works of Ben Katchor and Charles Addams, And My Also follows the adventures of Miranda, a beautiful high school senior who runs away to sea on her prom night. She becomes the sea cook aboard The Widow Douglas, a creaky old freighter piloted by a drunken lunatic and crewed by a bickering duo of deckhands who are just a few steps removed from Abbot and Costello. After she wows the crew with her soup recipe, she learns of her captain's mad quest, and the unexpected fate that awaits the ship at the edge of the world. 7-in. x 6-in., 40 pages, B&W. Mature Readers. Cover price $4.00.
