The AV Club has presented an exclusive preview of Our Wretched Town Hall, along with a thoughtful write-up on the book from critic Oliver Sava:
“Eric Kostiuk Williams’ comics are visually defined by their malleability. His forms shine like latex and stretch like taffy, and his stories take place in surreal, psychedelic environments that morph as time passes. That fluid visual aesthetic ties into major themes of his work like gender expression, queer culture, and urban preservation and development, all of which involve people and places in a constant state of change. His new book from Retrofit, Our Wretched Town Hall, collects a variety of his short comics and illustrations, spotlighting his signature style and his skill at telling stories full of emotion and atmosphere in a very short page count.”
Our Wretched Town Hall will be premiering at Comic Arts Brooklyn on Sunday, November 11, with wider release later in the month.
