This straight-up 32-page full color comic book by the famed French Filmmaker, Michel Gondry, rounds out this month's PictureBox trifecta. Perhaps the zaniest war comic ever produced, Gondry pits four former draft evading slackers against a hoard of communist babes intent on taking over France in this over the top satire that conflates the battle between the sexes, the war on communism and modern America-centric militarism to create a comic book that has a surprisingly large amount in common with the old-school underground comics of yore.
And here's another new one from PictureBox. In 2008, Gondry contacted Doucet with a film proposal. Involving a unique hybrid of still, unanimated drawings, and live action filming, Gondry and Doucet worked together to try to make something new, and they have: this is an equally unique film-book (or, book-film?). An 80-page hardcover complete with DVD of the entire film that resulted from Doucet and Gondry's collaboration, which is small, personal film that is a unique hybrid of drawing, animation and live-action that runs about 20 minutes.
