Summary, etc. note: Nominated for 2 Eisner Awards for best web comic, winner of an Expozine award, and hailed by and the Montreal Mirror, Matthew Forsythe's Ojingogo is highly anticipated. Exuding simplicity in design and narrative, Ojingogo is an illustrated, "Jim Woodring-esque" dreamscape of abstracts and events. The otherworldly pantomime about a girl, her squid, and the creatures and calamities they experience together, is an intrinsically expressive and deeply rewarding journey. Drawing from Forsythe's Korean influences, Ojingogo is accessible for all ages, tossing aside traditional narrative conventions in favor of creating its own world, language, and rules, in which anyone can find a home of their own.Ojingogo was originally serialized as a Web comic in 2004. It was nominated for an Eisner Award in 2005 (Best Digital Comic) and featured in the "Year's Best Graphic Novels, Comics, and Manga." Ojingogo was nominated again for an Eisner Award (Best Digital Comic) and won an Expozine Award (Best English Comic) in 2006.
