by Kevin Czap (2015)
Fütchi Perf’s idealized future is home to tightly-knit romantic friendships, life-changing basement shows, uber-chic cultural tastemakers and magical solutions to real problems. Kevin Czap’s new book weaves together a handful of short comics, assembled like songs on an album, against the shared backdrop of a better, happier Cleveland. Taken as a whole, Fütchi Perf addresses resonant themes such as optimism, societal change and community.
“Czap’s feminist text and drawings make you question all parameters of how we think about bodies, time, control, and agency, while at the same time finding total meaning in every intentional experience and thing you have tried, loved, failed at, or dreamt about.”
