It’s worth confessing from the outset that it would probably be fair to describe me as a creepy fanboy when it comes to Matilda Tristram’s comics. The delightful nonsensicalitism (not a word) of a mini comic entitled ‘Melony’s apples’ which I picked up at the Thing in 2006 was one of the catalysts for my own early tentative productions. the thing I love about ‘Crystal Catherine’ is how it combines mind blowing psycheldelia with pedestrian banality, demonstrating in the process how unbearably weird every day life is. It brings to mind Hunter S Thomson’s quip about how he was scared to give up drugs in case he stopped being able to see the world as it really is. img395
