Tomer's book comprises his strange and compelling stories from Alternative's Bipolar #1-5 and the Johnny Weissmuller tribute, "Elephant Graveyard," from the Jim Higgins-helmed New Thing: Identity anthology. Most of these black-and-white narratives are as realistic as a mouthful of bloody asphalt, yet flavored by elements (the talking cats in "Time Strips," the low-rent Trevanian conceit of "Zina & Me," the superheroic backstory of "Aquaflesh") of a transcendent surreality; each of the stories benefits from the artist's fine-line draftsmanship and sharp sense of timing; each of them will do interesting things to the inside of your head. --The Austin Chronicle
