Together in September 2018, they edited I Feel Machine, a graphic anthology published though SelfMadeHero. Based on the theme of technology Hanshaw and Able invited prominent creators from around the world to contribute to the book, including Tillie Walden, Shaun Tan, Box Brown and Erik Svetof.
And now, it seems, they are working on a sequel. I Feel Love will be published by SelfMadeHero in February, with creators Anya Davidson, Cat Sims, Benjamin Marra, and Kelsey Wroten. Here's a look ahead.
I FEEL LOVE GN (MR)
(W) Julian Hanshaw (A) Krent Able
Love makes the world go round. It can also turn your heart as black as coal. In the much anticipated follow up to their Eisner-nominated I Feel Machine, Julian Hanshaw and Krent Able curate a series of dystopian, satirical and psychological short fictions from artists Anya Davidson, Cat Sims, Benjamin Marra, and Kelsey Wroten that explore love's dark, twisted underbelly, and offer a much-needed tonic to everything that is sweet, cloying, and conventional. As unflinching as it is honest, I Feel Love questions the one emotion that is meant to make us feel good – but often does the exact opposite.
