    The anthology premise of Deep Cuts proves to be nothing but a blessing in this installment, crafting space for a heartfelt and easily-mesmerizing family story. Chronicling the childhood of Alice Leslie, a mystery-obsessed girl whose latest fixation is her dad’s abandoned jazz career. The end result is timeless, with an endlessly-effective script from Joe Clark and Kyle Higgins, and incredibly lively art from Diego Greco. Even if you haven’t been picking up the previous issues of Deep Cuts, you owe it to yourself to try out this one.

    Clark and Higgins show a masterful sense of rhythm with respect to the overall plot structure of the one-shot story. Dramatic moments hang in the air and on the page just long enough to make an impression before the next major plot point glides into view. It’s a remarkably delicate and intricate drama that continues to establish Deep Cuts as one of the best new series of 2023.

    Like the two prior issues of Deep Cuts. This issue tells a unique and fun story of a musician and their love of music. Only this time out. The principal character has a tough life decision to make, which is ultimately made for him.
