Oliver Sava of the A.V. Club reviews Michael DeForge’s latest, Lose #6, which he sees as signalling a new direction in the artist’s approach to comics making.
“Heartwarming” isn’t a word typically associated with DeForge’s often unsettling work, but the main story in Lose #6, “Me As A Baby,” is a surprisingly sweet tale about how far a “cool aunt” will go to make her niece happy … It’s really quite touching, as long as you’re willing to forgive the string of dead bodies left by Cherelle [the cool aunt] on her path to triumph.” — Oliver Sava, A.V. Club

My eyes are leaking and I have a lump in my throat. This is so so cute
what really breaks my heart about this video is that abandoned dogs who react so defensively to humans like that usually have some major trust issues due to past trauma—most likely abuse. dogs can usually tell what someone’s intentions are when approaching, and while they may not trust a rescuer and might back away or out of reach, they usually won’t feel the need to lash out. but a dog that’s been abused equates humans with pain and, being in a vulnerable situation on its own, tries to defend itself. this little baby girl probably went through some really tough times before she ended up on her own. but it makes me very happy to see that she’s got a happy ending.
