Take me to Hell

zine review:

Take me to Hell

Yien Yip’s Take Me to Hell is a brief but artfully drawn comic that culls influence from manga and film noir. Its story is dark and subtly supernatural, following the plight of a mercenary “hunter in an urban jungle.” However, the grim plot merely serves as the framework for Yip’s superbly stylized drawings, which revel in a sort of dramatic abstraction, cleverly juxtaposing the beautiful and the macabre. Lovingly bound by thread and printed on thick, sturdy paper, this entire booklet, though thin, is a splendid treat from a budding artist. (Michael Tau)
