Joan Cornellá has been posting his absurd and darkly violent -- yet, somehow, horribly, humorous -- painted pantomime comics online for quite awhile. Now, Fantagraphics has deemed it fit to collect a batch of these single-page gag strtips in this slim hardcover volume, and so provide these darkly delineated sentiments, emanating from España, with an entrée into the physical reality of North America. You have been warned.
Temporarily out of print. We have just a couple copies remaining of the curent printing, but expect a new printing by the end of the summer, in theory.
48 more of Joan Cornellá's pantomime cartoon paintings that mix absurdity and bad taste in another pert, finely crafted, hardcover volume. Each work an indefinable concoction of egregious juxtapositions that seems, if only for a fleeting instant, to capture the craziness of our world.
