The Siamese Twins Daisy and Violet: Love Story from a Nation of Silence (2006).

Akiyama, Takayo.

Created by Takayo Akiyama the zine follows the life of two Siamese twins, Daisy and Violet. The twins work in a local pub as barmaids and as musicians. Whilst working a shift, Daisy becomes infatuated with a yeti that walks in. A love struck Daisy sets out to win the heart of the yeti by trying to seduce him through hypnotism. Unfortunately, for Daisy (and luckily for her sister Violet) their love is not meant to be.

The zine is set in a vast world featuring a variety of different monsters, ghosts, giant squids, mermaids as well as more unconventional monsters.
