Dee Lightful 

Wednesday, Dec 9 2009
Jamaica Dyer is the new Ariel Schrag. If you don't know what that means, then … you're not a comics geek. The point is, Dyer's innovative watercolor Web-comic, Weird Fishes, has the ability to pull readers, as though with a rope, into the world of teen instability and pit-deep passions. (And it's now a book, as well.) We haven't seen independent sequential art this evocative since Schrag's early autobiographical work, and that's saying a lot — she won a slew of awards and is now a wildly successful writer (for The L Word) and professor (the New School). At "Dee's Siren Song," Dyer exhibits original paintings of panels from Weird Fishes and other work, much of it mixed watercolor and digital graphic techniques. We predict wild success.
