“#i!” COMICS! Sometimes Tenderness Is A Weakness.

John Kane

There now follows a change to our scheduled programme. Settle back as our Argentinian chums Eduardo Risso and the late Carlos Trillo take us on a trip to the near future where everything is awful; simply awful. Just dreadful, darlings. Ugh. (Oh, And I realise Argentina isn’t in Europe but the book was originally published in Italy(?), which is in Europe so check and mate!) BORDERLINE by Risso & Trillo and Brandon

“I Guess You Could Call It An EYEFUL SORE!” COMICS! Sometimes That Joke Isn’t Punny Anymore!

John Kane

Bit of a hybrid this time out. It’s a little bit European and a little bit American. Something for everyone! Also, Batman! Everyone loves Batman! Unfortunately it’s kind of terrible. But, wait! I’m getting ahead of myself… BATMAN: EUROPA by Parel, Camuncoli, Casali, Azzarello and Brosseau Anyway, this…

“My Diabetes Prevents Me.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s A Theatre of Blood!

John Kane

Hey kids! Who’s up for a heroically opaque fable about a vengeful castrato, illustrated in a darkly twisted melange of Gustav Klimt and José Muñoz! Okay, howabout if I describe it as CH Greenblatt’s Chowder via E.T.A. Hoffman? Ooooh, your little ears perked right up! Yes! It’s Euro-comic time! Everybody loves The Eurocomics! FOLIGATTO by Nicolas de Crécy and Alexios Tjoyas Anyway, this…

“We Must Allow None of These DIBBUKS To Escape!” COMICS! Sometimes God Loves a Trier.

John Kane

A funny thing happened on the way to The Reichstag…. 7 PSYCHOPATHS by Phillips, Vehlmann, Heching, Hubert & Peteri Anyway, this…

“Scream Twice If You Still Understand Anything I’m Saying.” COMICS! Sometimes It’s The Worst of All Worlds!

John Kane

It’s 2017! To start us off I cravenly pander to the swing of things to the Right Wing by looking at a comic with a Alt-Right Nazi as the good guy. Because only in Hell… REQUIEM VAMPIRE KNIGHT by Ledroit, Mills & Collin Anyway this…

“Would You Like A Waffle With Chestnut Butter?” COMICS! Sometimes It’s Safer In The Asylum.

John Kane

Bonjour mesdames et messieurs! Une tasse de thé sans lait, veuillez. Beaucoup merde! Or for those who lack the class I has, and thus do not speak the language of The French: This week John read a graphic novel by Jacques Tardi, who is not Jacques Tati but who is French. Luckily someone had the foresight to translate the book into The Beautiful Tongue or else this would have been a bit of a nonstarter.  You know, what with John being an enormous monolingual xenophobe and all.  RUN LIKE CRAZY RUN LIKE HELL (Tardi, Manchette) Anyway this…

“MY HAND!” COMICS! Sometimes They Go UP! Diddley Om Pom! Sometimes They Go Down!

John Kane

Oh! Good Day! Here’s a thrilling feature for your perusement and entertattlement right fine and glissome, no mistakers. Hmm. Bit rusty. Pokkita-Pokkita-Pokkita! Rum bugger’s coming at us out of the sun! Don’t worry it’ll all be over by Christmas. Or in three minutes. Depends what we’re talking about, you big dreamweasel, you! C hocks away..! The Red Baron by Puerta, Veys & Bence Anyway, this…

“…Until You Flood Me In A Milky Way of Pleasure!” Comics! Sometimes I Spend The Weekend At Bernet’s!

John Kane

And then I talk about some European comics illustrated by Jordi Bernet and the room gets blue quite quick. It’s not an appealing prospect I know so: Contains traces of adult subjects. NSFW. Danger, Will Robinson! DANGER! For the sake of The Children, turn back NOW!

“Okay, Let’s Go.” Comics! Sometimes They Contain Cowboys!

John Kane

I hear tell there’s no call for Western comics no more. I reckon folks don’t know diddly squat. One’s I read made me more than partial to ’em. Hunker down a spell why doncha and hear me jaw about a couple of Western comics.
