December, 1988

My favorite of all of Matt Howarth’s offbeat comics, KEIF LLAMA followed the adventures of a young Xeno-Tech– someone who’d been trained to understand alien thought processes and to effectively communicate around the incompatible differences between alien species. It was an intelligent science fiction series with something of the flavor of Asimov about it. And some nice, funky, distinctive cartooning– you’d never confuse Howarth’s style with anyone else’s.

KEIF LLAMA ran only six issues after appearing previously in the six issues of PARTICLE DREAMS, Howarth’s experimental anthology series. It’s a charming strip, one I’d like to see more of. Within the last year, Howarth released a new Keif Llama one-shot, so possibly that’s not out of the question.
