Two men, one on each side of a two-page spread, face each other with increasingly more (prestigious, militaristic) accessories: top hat and cane vs. uniform and flag, horse vs. dragon, etc. With the disguises come fear and with fear comes weapons to defend themselves against one another. Their passion to excel ultimately brings the story and the rivalry to and end. The Winner is constructed with utter simplicity and yet maintaining depth of thought, with its small simple characters set against a large white page cannot help but emphasize the needlessness of text. A run-through of escalation and then what?

A very funny book of IF’s that is colorful, zany, and utterly refreshing. Guaranteed to start a whole rash of fresh IF’s.

The Stranger, again relevant today, tackles big themes in a subtle way with a fable-like text showing us that a different outcome is possible, but only if we choose not to take the easy way out. Acceptation and empathy are only possible when we look into each other’s eyes and [...]
