OUT OF STOCK!
Night Animals contains two lushly rendered sequences of pantomimic pen and ink drawings employing monochromatic color schemes, each relating a revealing insight into humanity's animal nature. Equally informed by Maurice Sendack and David B., this 2007 work by the Belgian creator of the highly lauded 2010 release (and official 2011 Angoulême International Comics Festival selection), The Wrong Place, finally gets a chance to wow North American comics readers, courtesy of Top Shelf Publications, who put together a classy French-flapped edition employing an excellent paper stock. A mere 24 years old, Evens is clearly a comics prodigy from whom we have every reason to believe much more is to come. A brief word of caution is in order for potential readers of this particular work: while the image that graces this volume has a whimsical air about it, the work it previews is at its core an unsettling cautionary tale tinged with darkness.
