Tucker Stone:


One of the best looking comics to emerge out of the UK that isn’t from Nobrow, Windowpane is a mixed up collection of one off stories, some of the standard young people talking variety, some from the here’s-a-real-story. Joe Kessler’s use of color is what holds the whole thing together, there’s a sense of composition and thought that, when contrasted with the vaguely crude fluidity of his unpredictable line, results in a comic that seems like its construction crowds out narrative. This isn’t a book that reads, it moves, and Kessler’s variety of style is the beating heart. This is a great comic.
