Hungry Summer on the High-Low Best of 2014!

 Rob Clough gave a nice little write-up of Asher Craw's Hungry Summer for The Comics Journal.  Clough says:
"Craw updates the myth of Baba Yaga and puts it in a feminist, modern context without removing an ounce of her capricious and sometimes menacing nature. Those who cross her are literally made to lose all corporeal substance. Those fascinated by her do so at their own peril, even when they do her a favor. Transformation, blurred gender, and other forms of identification and the power of everyday magic continue to be Craw’s main themes, but the oblique way they play out here makes them all the more fascinating."
