6:09pm: Austin Chronicle reviews FEAR, MY DEAR
"Fear, My Dear is a brightly paneled bipartite mind-trip in which the artist's two favorite super-powered protagonists, the lovers Billy Dogma and Jane Legit, wage a "war of woo" for and against each other and tangle with a cosmic deity that's wreaking havoc on the very superstructure of terra incognito itself. Well, that's some of what's going on, at least, as rendered in swaths of black and white and red and yellow, delineated by Haspiel's bold Kirbeyesque lines, and bedazzled with dialogue and description like Lord Buckley guest-starring on a lost episode of Deadwood. "Pulp that emasculating gorgon before she blitzkriegs our power flower!" urges sweet Jane, before kayoing her zombie double in Billy's stead near story's start."
