While two Papuan guards were apprehended and sent to jail for their rule in the murder, the two Australian guards sought as alleged participants in the murder escaped back to their home country and have not been extradited to face justice -- yet another iteration of the stilted injustice of colonialism. Where traditional commercial comics feature a penciled draft that's later inked for clarify and then colored in discrete forms, Kebbi combines the three production stages into a single visual structure that's intentionally at war with itself. It's a subtle trick the pair manage to pull off throughout the album, like adroitly flicking from analogue to digital.

Even if that meant just writing about the latest game.
Continuing the theme of an internal haunting we enlisted the collaboration of Wes Tank, who edited the 'Roads' video, and locked ourselves in a motel in Wisconsin to create the visual emotive mood. On the opening title track, Sommers and Carroll simmer along with a tight, busy rhythm section as Uhlmann's guitar creates cascades of melody. One could find the opinions of game designers and academics posting alongside fans and hobbyists. The old question of whether or not games could be art was put to rest, but what followed was the issue of how one was supposed to talk about this developing medium at all. He was a nice guy, got into a strange situation, and the only way that he would think of out at that time was to kill himself. After harassment by government-backed paramilitaries, the magazine's offices were raided and several of its staff imprisoned.
Just when you think the song has been lost, he shifts back into the tune for a quick finish. But Fior's blueprints are more complex, preferring suggestive ambiguity over definitive closure. The orderly structure offsets the more anarchic panel interiors. He's built an important journalistic oeuvre on the topic which ought to be read by anyone trying to learn about the refugee crisis -- and others who should know about it. While two Papuan guards were apprehended and sent to jail for their rule in the murder, the two Australian guards sought as alleged participants in the murder escaped back to their home country and have not been extradited to face justice -- yet another iteration of the stilted injustice of colonialism.
