Jamie Tanner is one of those cartoonists who defies being typecast to any specific genre. His dry wit leads to absurd comedic scenarios yet his books aren't necessarily comedic, and the situations that his characters find themselves in are horrific but are not horror in any sense of the word. In his previous book, the Eisner nominated The Aviary, Tanner used a group of seemingly unconnected characters and stories to introduce us to both his writing and his art style. Sprawling and unsettling, The Aviary was pocket dynamite, staying with you long after the book was finished. Can lightning strike twice for Tanner? Find out after the jump. Also, the Kindle Fire. How does it work for a comics fan and is it worth it? That too, you will find after the jump.
