Hypnotic Induction Technique is a collection of comics (2009-11). which all share a dream-like quality. Some play with traditional narrative structure, while others float through transformational abstraction. It is also a document of my own deep depression during this period.
"Jeezus, Reynolds... This Technique is a patty melt full of bloody hair and a side of mucus fries. Split down the middle, H.I.T. begins with a medley of shorter pieces so viciously viscously combined it's hard to tell where the pizza puff ends and the rectum begins, and frankly, why would you want to? Progressively wrapping itself around itself, the wormy mass and thready entrails put their cord through a narrative meat grinder. The resultant chuck and splatter is the perfect segway to "Peeled and Deveined" a prying terrorchase lit by nightmare flashlight. These are under-the-skin stories, the kind that keep you coming back to map the terrain of each page while your subconscious slides under the quicksand surface. Get in a suggestible state and sew this onto your mind." -- Edie Fake, Quimby's review.
