(W) Michael DeForge (A/CA) Michael DeForge
In the few short years since he began his pamphlet-sized comic book series Lose
, Michael DeForge has announced himself as an important new voice in alternative comics. Ant Colony
follows the denizens of a black ant colony under attack from the nearby red ants. On the surface, it's the story of this war, the destruction of a civilization, and the ants' all-too-familiar desire to rebuild. Underneath, though, Ant Colony
plumbs the deepest human concerns - loneliness, faith, love, apathy, and more. All of this is done with humor and sensitivity, exposing a world where spiders can wreak unimaginable amounts of havoc with a single gnash of their jaws.
