Kindgom/Order wordlessly follows a man as he searches for some sort of meaning in his life. Through symbols and sounds, it is clear that he is a part of the greater, natural world, and a bit divorced from the modern world which surrounds him. The nameless protagonist finds himself following the sounds of the animals around him - but how much of this is real, and how much is delusion? Whatever the case, Psaltis will leave you speechless.
"Psaltis’ style in the comic is part Black Hole-era Charles Burns, part Tom Kaczynski’s Beta Testing the Apocalypse and utterly transfixing. [His] work on Kingdom/Order is an utterly unique and beautiful representation of how comics can be so simple and complex at once, how they’re able to communicate with such emotion and intensity but also be completely clear and understandable without the burden of written language.”
