Sunday Herald Praises BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS and ANT COLONY

“I Think I'm In Love - Graphic Novel Reviews” / Sunday Herald / Teddy Jamieson / May 11, 2014

Beautiful Darkness by husband-and-wife Fabien Vehlmann and Kerascoet (Drawn & Quarterly, £15.99) is a potent dark thing full of candy-coloured pixie figures and real-world decay. The result is a poisoned apple of a fairy tale.  Michael DeForge’s Ant Colony (Drawn & Quarterly, £14.99) is just as vicious. The story of a dying black ant colony, it is packed with full-on vicious ant battles, insect sex and a sense of humour that is one part Woody Allen to two parts David Lynch.
