Ilya is a comic artist whose stories are published in the United States, Japan, and Europe.Review:
[A]ltogether outstanding. The variety of style and subject is gratifyingly broad yet exclusive. Superheroes and funny animals are nowhere in sight, with the closest thing being the alien bodyguard, Sadist, in Dom Morris' wild, Marvel-inflected portrayal of the pop-music biz as a criminally hedonistic racket. Equally raucous is Jonathan Edwards' mash-up of Damon Runyon and An American Werewolf in London in Aunt Connie and the Plague of Beards,” which looks like an artistically streamlined, comedic outtake from Muñoz and Sampayo's famous Alack Sinner. Very different in atmosphere is the harrowing kitchen-sink realism, full of close-ups and violence, of Gregory Benton's Hummingbird,” about a little girl unfortunately dependent on monumentally dysfunctional adults. Realistic autobiographical comics abound, from an Eddie Campbell story about his Blues” after being dumped to John Welding's diary comic about living in a country cottage, during which he frequently changes drawing style. Off on a tangent from drawn realism is Paul O'Connell's The Sound of Drowning,” a tour-de-force photo-collage in which Doris Day encounters the cast of TV's Happy Days in postapocalyptic America. And the other 14 entries are just as exceptional.
