Connor Willumsen is a master artist and storyteller, and his delicate line ties together this dreamlike, cyberpunk-esque tale involving a decaying metropolis, a mysterious jet-skiing DVD vendor, psychedelic drugs, and a pet crocodile named Blade. A gorgeous demonstration of the experimental possibilities of sequentiality and narrative in comics. Dazzling cartooning.

Description


Reality's grip is loosened as Spyda and Lynxa explore a potentially constructed environment that shifts between dystopic future and constructed virtual present. Like a form of multistable perceptual phenomena, Anti-Gone exists in ambiguity.

Anti-Gone recalls videogames that attempt to replicate, or perhaps replace, reality. Often called virtual or synthetic worlds, massively multiplayer online worlds offer an escape into another identity, another life, where there isn't a goal or final boss like most videogames. Similarly, Anti-Gone is like Joyce with a joystick, the experience and the language of this otherworld is the meaning.

Connor Willumsen is a Montreal-based artist originally from Calgary, AB, where he received a design degree at the Alberta College of Art and Design.

Since then, he has drawn stories for Marvel, DC, and Dynamite and illustrated the covers for Criterion editions of David Cronenberg's Scanners and Stanley Kubrick's The Killing. He has self-published a number of zines and comics and in 2014, Breakdown Press published volumes one and two of his book Treasure Island.
