All things converge on Alex Ellroy, as Lon Eisley wonders if maybe she was supposed to kill this small child after all. A mindreader walks through Alex's very messy issues, a rich villain wants to manipulate his new abilities, and an unhinged ex-government agent just wants to talk. All while a city prepares to burn. Lindsay & Kivela bring you a gonzo dystopian tale of brutal parenting, fragile dreamscapes, and warped relationships.

    There's an introduction of more characters, more surprises around every bend and more lots more moments where my jaw just dropped in awe and horror. This is a consistent comic so hard that stays on brand so hard"it's many things but boring isn't one of them. Beautiful Canvas is shaping up to be one of my favorite comics of this year and it's only two issues in. Read Full Review

    Is is everyone else reading this? Why the hell not? Of course, we can hardly say for certain at this stage whether or not the arc will form into a sort of amazing Megazord of sequential art (timely reference is timely), but even if the story somehow ends up fizzling out at its denouement, what a fucking ride itllve been. Get yourself aboard this series, no excuses. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Ben Snyder Jul 26, 2017

    I am really loving this story so far. Writer Ryan K. Lindsay and artist Sami Kivela are beginning one of the cleverest and mysterious stories I have read in a long time. And while eventually, we will need answers and clarifications, being lost in this intricate plot and characters is enough to make Beautiful Canvas #2 a standout issue this week. Read Full Review
