We feel deeply, we express when we feel like it, we cry Heart Shaped Tears.”

Heart Shaped Tears by Abby Jame

American Cult edited by Robyn Chapman

From its earliest days, America has been home to spiritual seekers.

In 1694, the religious tolerance of the Pennsylvania Colony enticed a Transylvanian monk and his forty followers to cross the Atlantic. Almost two hundred years later, a charismatic preacher founded a utopian community in Oneida, New York, that practiced socialism and free love. In the 1960s and ’70s, a new generation of seekers gathered in vegetarian restaurants in Los Angeles, Satanic coffee shops in New Orleans, and fortified communes in Philadelphia. And in the twenty-first century, gurus use self-help seminars and get-rich-quick schemes
to evangelize to their flocks.

Across the decades, Americans in search of divine truths have turned to unconventional prophets for the answers. Some of these prophets have demanded their faith, fortunes, and even their very lives. In American Cult, over twenty cartoonists explore the history of these groups with clarity and empathy—looking beyond the scandalous headlines to find the human stories within.

Featuring the talents of cartoonists Steve Teare, Emi Gennis, Ellen Lindner, Rosa Colón, Janet Harvey, Jim Rugg, Andrew Greenstone, Lara Antal, Josh Kramer, Mike Dawson, Ryan Carey, Mike Freiheit, Jesse Lambert, Ben Passmore, Lisa Rosalie Eisenberg, Vreni Stollberger, J.T. Yost, Robyn Chapman, Robert Sergel, Lonnie Mann, and Box Brown.

In the thrilling conclusion, Dolores and Joe must fight their way out of a tight corner, and go up against the cops, the mob, and even city hall to get justice for Frances’s murder. But even if they find the people responsible, can Dolores wring a confession from them before the clock runs out?

Review: Angel City #2

angelcity-2-marketing_preview-1Frances Faye and Dolores Dare were best friends, once upon a time; small town girls with cardboard suitcases and dreams of Hollywood stardom. But that was the past. Now, Frances has been murdered, and the crooked Los Angeles cops don’t care enough to solve the crime. Dolores hunts for the murderer everywhere, from high-end studio lots to seedy gambling dens. But as she gets closer to unraveling the mystery, she also nears a betrayal that hits close to home.

In Angel City #2, writer Janet Harvey brings in a lot of Dolores’ backstory. The issues explains how Frances and Dolores met in a Depression era boarding house which adds a lot of depth to the series. It does a solid job showing why the two of them grew to be friends with dreams of Hollywood. The present contrasts this some by showing off Doleres’ attempt at deception to get the answers she wants. It’s an interesting switch from the wide eyed character we see dreaming of stars.

The black and white color choice used to depict flashbacks works really well for this series. It manages to contrast well with the more colorful present. I won’t spoil the odd standout scene in this issue but, it does do a good job of merging both the past and present. It shows off some of the acrobatic skills Doleres’ learned in her when she was in the circus. Artist Megan Levens delivers with the art mixing fun action with a noir story.
