The Scotland Herald reviews Shit Is Real

“Graphic Content: Reviews of new work by Lisa Hanawalt, Imogen and Isabel Greenberg, Annie Goetzinger and others” / The Scotland Herald / Teddy Jamieson / September 13, 2018

Or is it? German cartoonist Aisha Furth’s story about a young woman called Selma is set in a world of break-ins, break-ups, depression, laundromats and unemployment. But it is also full of dream sequences, erotic fantasies and anthropomorphised people with animal heads. In short, it doesn’t look much like Cowdenbeath (or not the last time I was there).

Franz’s style is crude at first look but there’s a real expressiveness to her line and she weaves a narrative that is full of mystery and depth. Plus, she draws a great cat.
