“Yes, it’s lady-violence. But, take note ! The heroines of this story are more sparring partners than opponents. The fight is about self-affirmation and finding a balance, not letting the one element dominate the other. It is based on a performance entitled iObject vs. iSubject which is an artistic research into the (thus named) philosophical problem. Besides age-old feminist issues, it deals with universal sores, packaged in the aesthetics of Transformers, WWE wrestlers, and (yes, scantily clad) valkyries.”

“On the surface you could look at this comic as just a couple of chicks in weird costumes with nipple guns kicking butt and ripping off clothes, but you’d be missing a much deeper story. This really is a visual representation of the dichotomy of existence.
The visual style used throughout iObject vs iSubject is uniform figure and background outlines with weight added through hatching. The layout and pacing are handled nicely and merge well with the art to effectively communicate the story in this silent comic.
This ain’t your average indie comic, it’s an art comic with a deep philosophical question that demands more from the reader to fully appreciate the overall meaning of the images filling the pages.”
