Two mysterious girls (twins?) make mischief in Hans Rickheit's creepy new graphic novel.
Cochlea & Eustachia appear to be twin human girls, but this has yet to be confirmed. Their actions seem to be motivated less by curiosity than boredom and an inclination towards purposeless destruction. Any connate objective remains to be determined. They never stray apart from each other, out of an unspoken proclivity. Perhaps they keep together because they resemble each other; a mixture of vanity and comfort is the foundation of their constant companionship. They seem to consider any creature with dissimilar features as inept or untrustworthy. They are suspected of giving hypnotic suggestions to cats. They do not seem particularly malicious, just meddlesome. This new graphic novel from the author of the acclaimed Squirrel Machine is lighter in tone than his previous works, yet its myriad charms remain as sinister as Rickheit fans would expect.
"…Hans Rickheit's Cochlea & Eustachia unapologetically embraces its own id and delivers plenty of visual delight." — Rich Barrett - Mental Floss
"Hans Rickheit creates… a work that is otherworldly and haunting, with densely beautiful images and a series of events that are inexplicable… That loose inner logic is a big part of why this is such a hauntingly lovely creation. … This book is a delight with its own very specific internal dream logic and its wonderfully moving power. … Cochlea & Eustachia is marvelous. Pick up a copy of this book and experience a living dream on the comics page…" — Jason Sacks - Comics Bulletin
"…Hans Rickheit [is] a truly unique purveyor of the lovely and sinister." — Joe McCulloch - The Comics Journal
