In Jaako Pallasvuo's Mirror Stage we're taken on a journey of self-reflection, introspection and dank memes. Cátia Serrão teaches us the importance of quackery in Acquisition. Līva Kandevica takes us on an emotional (and very yellow) rollercoaster in the aptly named Yellow. In Bad Ball we see the result of radioactive insects on discarded comics, all thanks to Samplerman!

'Acquisition' by Cátia Serrão
Starting with the anodyne question 'What does the duck say?' Acquisition stages a proof test conducted by an absent master and a semi-present assistant to a candidate in the best tradition of clownish pixelated Kabbalah.

mini kuš! #53
'Yellow' by Līva Kandevica
What would you do if you knew that this reality that you experience does not even exist? This is a yellowish nightmare where the protagonist is trapped in his own imagination. It seems like a never-ending suffering, but maybe it's not even happening?

mini kuš! #54
'Bad Ball' by Samplerman
What if an old discarded comic book was suddenly bitten by a radioactive, genetically modified spider? Would the cover drawing, or those inside the book, start behaving strangely? Would the dialogue slowly grow s(tu)pider and s(tu)pider? Would the paper start to melt? Would the story devolve to the point of meaningless? None of these questions will be answered in this minicomic.
