I'd been looking to read this one for a while. Really interesting to see the progression of Hanuka's artwork and storytelling. While many of these short pieces initially seem simply surreal, closer attention reveals some impressive experiments in storytelling. Elephant's Graveyard was awesome and an absolute surprise.
