"Conniptions is a 40-ish page collection of short strips that provide brief meditations of a bleak, sometimes nihilistic nature. If you’re looking for a diverting comfort reading then this isn’t the comic for you. But if you’re more into densely packed monologues that touch on themes of futility, death and disappointment this may well be more your thing." Andy Oliver Broken Frontier (Sept 21)
