Strawberry Milkshake by Cate Wurtz

Strawberry Milkshake is a short and evocative comic about gaslighting, domestic abuse, and the ways that not being believed can warp your sense of reality.

The framing between sections had this strange tonal dissonance with the rest of the comic in a way that built a sense of dread even before it was clear what’s going on. The drawing style (especially the way certain characters’ images warped) was great and made it very clear what was happening while also keeping explicit violence to the minimum required to still convey the story.

CW for gaslighting, body horror, blood, self harm, domestic abuse.
