    Comic Watch - Dustin Gebel Oct 20, 2022

    Public Domain #5 is an issue that cultivates the embers of joy that come from creating while building to a cliffhanger that doesnt succeed based on tension but with pure catharsis. After four issues of watching the grim realities of what it means to devote a life to art, and comics specifically, theres a primal release in watching the Dallas family, and Tanya (and Mohammed) be rewarded for their passions. The road ahead may be perilous, and the bitterness and harsh realities of the industry are waiting on the other end, but in the moment, that doesnt matter. This book will be immortalized in its final panels, with the group standing around art being worked on, with pure joy on everyones faces. Its the type of scene that illustrates why comics, and art, matter and how they can create the strongest of connections. Its an emotional call to action to gather some people and start making art of your own, and let the process bring joy. Read Full Review
