Huizenga calls it quits for Or Else
I’ve decided that Or Else (the series) is done. It doesn’t make sense to do it this way anymore. Drawn and Quarterly have been great and I want to thank them. For sure I will still be putting out a lot of books and zines, forever, so save your pennies, and watch this space for more news as it becomes available. Thanks for reading.
There have been five issues of the pocket-sized comic book, published on a yearly schedule, to date (that’s the abandoned cover to the sixth one on the right). The comic largely seemed to serve as a forum for Huizenga’s more experimental and avant-garde work, the last issue finding his everyman Glenn Ganges trapped in an imaginary country torn apart by religious fanaticism.
An email was sent to Huizenga, but he politely declined to comment any further at this time.
Update: It looks as though Huizenga will be releasing the material that was supposed to appear in Or Else #6 as a 28-page mini-comic, available in a few weeks.
