It’s November 2X66, and a Resistance aircraft is shot down by The Regime. One resistance fighter, alive but injured, lies waiting for her fate… And We Love You is her story.

Writer and illustrator Fell Hound, a queer Asian-Canadian cartoonist from Toronto, gives us a multilevel story in this one-shot from Scout Comics.

It’s the story of Kasey and Julie, who ‘officially’ meet at the resistance recruitment office. There’s a strong connection between two strong warrior women, who fall in love amidst the chaos of battle. But all is not well, as the United Republic resistance fighters are severely outnumbered. Story developments emphasize the futility of war and the endurance of love and spirit.

Fell Hound plays with the strengths of the comic medium in telling us the story of “Headkase and Woozie”; some sequences are in full colour, some in muted black and white with spot colour. Flashbacks intermingle with the present in overlapping visual elements. Time is compressed and elongated. It’s a wonderful handling of love and war, giving us hammering battle scenes, quiet moments of tender drama, and everything in-between.

Letters are by Lucas Gattoni, with edits by Frankee White. Cover by Angela Wu, with logo design by Winston Gambro, and Scout editor is Andrea Lorenzo Molinari. Cover B by Skylar Patridge

About Alan Spinney

After a career of graphic design, art direction and copywriting, I still have a passion for words and pictures. I love it when a comic book comes together; the story is tight, and the drawings lead me forward. Art with words... the toughest storytelling technique to get right. Was this comic book worth your money? Let's see!!
