Snake Skin Subtext, by Brian A. Kenny
Here are the first 5 pages of Brian A. Kenny's graphic novel Snake Skin Subtext.
It's distributed by A Raven Above Press, & available here & here.
The symbolism reminds me of Tarot cards & Egyptian mythology, & has a ritualistic feeling. The narrative feels like an internal, psychic drama rather than events occurring in the outside world. It's abstract inasmuch as it doesn't rely on drawings of consensus reality.
Like no other book I can recall. (A distant cousin would be Italo Calvino's The Castle of Crossed Destinies.)
