Compulsive Comics, a collection comprising reprinted stories by Eric Haven, is a wonderful bit of weird. His draftsmanship evokes some sort of sweet spot between '70s underground comix, '90s alt-comics, and classic serialized strips featuring strange creatures and square-jawed, Flash Gordon types. But his sensibilities, even more than the glorious art, are the real selling point. I don't think I've come across such an eclectic mix of hilarity and horror and wonderment. Laughing even as you feel a little sick in confronting the nature of existence is probably the better way to confront it than the ways not involving humor. (www.fantagraphics.com)
