About Island of Memory
Bak’s first volume of WILD MAN -- The Natural History of Georg Wilhelm Steller (Floating World Comics) examines the human condition within the natural order at the extremes of the unknown.
Part natural history, part adventure yarn, and part experimental narrative, this 74-page, full-color fever dream is the artistic realization of an inquiry into the socioecological consequences of empire.
