"The Mystery of Language"

This strangely elating sequence reads like a brutally edited language primer illustrated by a Scotsman in hypnopompic reverie. The yo-yo in the first panel rhymes with the High Anxiety eyes in the third, as well as suggesting the recursive use of words (dogs, anchovies). The deep, de Chirico-esque field, the enormous sack of fish, the champagne toast—this is a celebration of intangible joy.

—From The Yale Herald, November 30, 1990 (Vol X, issue 12)
