AkiraVol6

It hits the fan here. Akira was ‘awake’ before, but not he is AWAKE.

There is a jarring bit with an untelegraphed time jump but that might be because of the way it is collected. There was probably an issue break there.

AkiraVol5

Akira is out and about through the whole collection… but is still more maguffin than anything else. He even hung out in a dumpster for a while until a character found him, pretty much randomly.

Room 41-2

 

It is funny but when I read periodicals that include poetry and short stories and essays, it is invariably one of the non-poetry features that stands out to me, despite the fact that I am HERE for the poetry.
It is probably because I read less of them.
Regardless, I strongly recommend that you pick up this issue for two stories.

The first is called 504 by Amy Oldfield. It was an incredibly visceral ending. It was both predictable and jarring, if that is possible. Strong writing.

The second is called Nameless Stones by Ava Homa. It is completely unrelateable for ME, which is important why it be read. Actually, that goes for both stories.

Arc-86

As always, it seems odd to review a magazine where my name appears in the editorial credits, but still… this is a great publication.

Alessandra Naccarato, Lillian Allen, Leah Horlick, Kevin Irie, JM Francheteau, Billeh Nickerson, Moet Surani, Noor Naga…. don’t miss this.

AkiraVol4

 

The proverbial fan has been hit.

There is an odd thing in this collection where suddenly there are a couple of pages that are coloured and printed using a different method than all the rest. It looks clearly different. My guess is that it has something to do with the original publication. Maybe these pages were a centre page pull out or something.

AkiraVol3

 

Back to reading Akira. Three volumes in and we have yet to see the titular character… but Tetsuo is doing his best to change that.
