Just ordered Death Is Not the End: The Art of Alexander Heir from Sacred Bones Records - looks promising. 
On 1st glance I immediately thought of those Russian prison tattoo books. I’ve been meaning to pick those up too - christ, it’ll never end!

Also, Heir did the cover art for the Killed by Deathrock anthology which is well worth your time.

Recent purchase from Velocity Comics who bought a hefty backstock of Picturebox material.   
Overt humor, non-sequitur transitions, and reflective musings make this comic a bizarre behavioral study.  Sometimes when I read CF I feel like I tapped into some arcane knowledge pool that scares the fuck outta me. Core Of Caligula

I don’t think I’ve read a comic in a while that caught a reader up to speed as efficiently as the first two pages of Axa does.  A really satisfying combo of writing and art:  Boom, I’m there - this whole scenario makes total sense.  Thanks guys!
Axa is a dopey, softcore mash-up of Red Sonja, Barbarella, and Mad Max.  I think my biggest issue with this comic is that I found out a more adult version exists.
It’s brainless fun and Romero’s art is the main attraction - although he signs almost every other page (?) - it begins to create it’s own joke. Axa #1

Revulsion Comics is now available at desertislandbrooklyn

Grab a copy today!  They also have a few copies left of the now out-of-print mini-mini comic Negative Pleasure Comics.  Looks like they’re sold out of Jeans #2, though, which means it’s pretty much sold out everywhere now.

The culture of cosplaying isn’t necessarily the focus here.  Instead it’s an opening that Shaw uses to direct his female leads from mildly deceptive into potentially dangerous situations.  Equally as impressive is Shaw’s ability to render such emotive qualities through economic drawing.  Each brief chapter and their bookend portraits highlight how its characters strive to create something more than themselves - showing their flaws either in or out of costume.  Recommended.  Cosplayers

Me Nut Nut Nut #2
By Jason Murphy 
Space Face Books
2014
Jason Murphy’s silent and hapless Booger can’t catch a break in his cluttered life.  His anonymous female partner, however, more than makes up for his shortcomings by always being there with much needed TLC.  Murphy’s comic strikes at the heart of what we truly want out of this fleeting existence:  just to have someone hold us, dry our eyes, and, at times, apply a much needed band-aid.  
MNNN's sweet storytelling is only complimented more so by its drawings.  Visually echoing Guston's later paintings and Svankmajer's crowded Darkness/Light/Darkness, Murphy successfully gives the reader an optimistic way to contemplate and handle life’s endless annoyances.  Booger may not have the best of luck, but he always seems to take his lumps in stride.  Awesome.

Cat Claw #1
By Bane Kerac
Eternity
1990
Cat Claw is what happens when you mix Spiderman’s origin with a hefty dash of early adolescent sexual longing.  Despite the title’s and Kerac’s claim, I don’t think this comic was trying to address a mature (or erotic) fan base; ogling Cat Claw is as tame as flipping through a swimsuit issue - even less.  
That aside, Kerac clearly knows how to visually push a story.  Influences of Marvel Illuminati are present, but even more curious is the Jaime Hernandez similarities in some of the later issues.  Hernandez’s God and Science (among other stories) shares Kerac’s obvious love of the super hero genre by playing up its tropes with melodramatic appeal.  Also, more aesthetic comparisons between the two come about when Kerac depicts Cat Claw’s roommate, Jeannie Jones, as a bumbling mess à la Don DeCarlo.  
Yea, you should pick this up.

I’ve been bouncing between Abram’s The Horror! The Horror! and stray issues of DC’s Ghosts for a bit now.  The biggest difference is how tame the latter is, especially considering films such as Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist were released years prior to the above images.  Regardless, I really doubt Ghosts was intended to be scary.  And although they lack legitimate scares, it’s more than made up for in their satisfying vignettes and wonderful art.  I recommend picking these up for solely studying compositions. 

Thanks to comicbookdb for filling in the glaring credits gap - really quite sad, a lot of these stories fail to properly list their respective creators.  Ghosts, indeed.

I’ve been bouncing between Abram’s The Horror! The Horror! and stray issues of DC’s Ghosts for a bit now.  The biggest difference is how tame the latter is, especially considering films such as Rosemary’s Baby and The Exorcist were released years prior to the above images.  Regardless, I really doubt Ghosts was intended to be scary.  And although they lack legitimate scares, it’s more than made up for in their satisfying vignettes and wonderful art.  I recommend picking these up for solely studying compositions. 

Thanks to comicbookdb for filling in the glaring credits gap - really quite sad, a lot of these stories fail to properly list their respective creators.  Ghosts, indeed.

The next comic is Her Love Runs Cold by Anthony Meloro. I liked the super-raw style it’s drawn in. I thought it was effective in conveying the story..or..well the “setup”..This is one that really invites the reader to fill in the ending. This kind of thing is my bag. I really enjoy it when a storyteller sets up a beginning and then goes abstract and lets the reader fill in the rest. This might not be everyone’s cup of tea but I sure like this kind of thing.
