Pedro Moura has written a detailed review of the collaborative abstract graphic novel a kick in the eye, which was published in Coldfront. It's very complex, and looks at how signs deliver their meaning, the difference between images and text, and so on. It's an expansion of what he wrote in Portuguese at his blog lerbd.

I've been a fan of Off Life comic for a while now -- they release collections of short comics from mostly-UK based creators. The style of the comics the run with is absolutely nothing like what I make, but I thought I'd give it a punt anyway, and repurposed the layout from a Ditko Amazing Spider-man (which Andrei reliably informs me is Ditko's best page, which I genuinely didn't know beforehand).
To make it a slightly better fit, I put some diary-comic style words together -- details of that can be found on my personal blog about the whole thing: http://garethahopkins.blogspot.co.uk/2014/09/submission-to-offlife-10.html
But here it is, in its raw form (other than bumping the layers and cropping, obviously).
