  3. An Exorcism / Theo Ellsworth

    An Exorcism by Theo Ellsworth
    kuš! mono #3, released on 25 April 2017

    When I reach the blue surface, my exorcism treatment will begin. I don't feel ready for this, but there's no turning back. This is going to be a harsh experience; that's all that I know.

    "Theo Ellsworth delves deep into another dimension, forming a world that is beautifully unnerving. Each panel explodes with intensity and movement, thick with complex line work, patterns, and creatures. Ellsworth's work is so original, and An Exorcism is an expressive outflow of his unique creative energy." - Jesse Jacobs

    Theo Ellsworth has made numerous comics and art zines including 'Capacity', 'Gnome Activity', and 'The Understanding Monster'. He is the house artist for the record label Astral Industries and his work has been featured in Best American Comics, Smoke Signal, and Trip Magazine.

    mini kuš! #54 'Bad Ball' by Samplerman, released on 25 April 2017

    What if an old discarded comic book was suddenly bitten by a radioactive, genetically modified spider? Would the cover drawing, or those inside the book, start behaving strangely? Would the dialogue slowly grow s(tu)pider and s(tu)pider? Would the paper start to melt? Would the story devolve to the point of meaninglessness? None of these questions will be answered in this minicomic.

  8. Brume / Amanda Baeza

    Brume by Amanda Baeza
    kuš! mono #2, released 21 February 2017

    Sutrama is a narrative about Roberte’s predilection for paradox and semantic opacity, playing incessantly with irony.
