new Tin Can Forest

Baba Yaga appears as a wise old witch in much Slavic folklore. She flies around on a broom, eats children and is all around someone to be avoided. Check out these gnarly images.

Baba Yaga and the Wolf
is the latest release of the Toronto collective Tin Can Forest (the duo responsible for D and Q's Pohadky). This interview gives a pretty good lowdown of what these guys do.

This thin, glossy, large format comic has all the somber colors and eerie mystery of an enchanted daymare. It takes place in a living forest where priests and vampires, the Devil and Jesus are all a normal part of everyday life.

The words and images trip over each other to reveal the strange strands of this reinvented mythology. It's a good, dark read.
