Het Moet Onverstaanbaar

comic, # 1 – 2 , $ 3 . 5 0 each, Marcel Herms, Postbus 6359, 7401 J J Deventer, Holland

Euro comics! Bizarre, intricate, ornate yet sloppy, these aren’t sequential stories, but more like frenetic outbursts. There are allusions to stories, cryptic moments of plot like “he entered the bar with the best of intentions” but things seem to quickly fall apart after that. Drawings are splatters of blue, black, green, red. But the distorted and grotesque is controlled, artful. An oddly precise outpouring of Euro-angst. Beautifully printed, these are worth checking out.
