The Beatles Press Reports – Review

January 1, 2008

The articles appear year-by-year, and you feel like you’ve gone back in time while you read them, as if you’re experiencing the Beatles phenomenon first-hand.

American Hair Metal – Review

March 3, 2007

Much has been written and filmed about the ’80s and ’90s hair metal flash, most of which falls somewhere between tongue-in-cheek and downright mocking in tone.

My Secret – Review

December 22, 2006

One of the stranger to books to’ve ever graced my coffee table. Who writes down their deepest, darkest secret, then mails it to someone to put in a book?

The Macho Man’s Drinkbook – Review

December 15, 2006

Something to keep in a high traffic area so you can pull it out at a party or when you’re drunk with friends for some gut laughs and quality boob ogling.

Buddy Does Seattle – Review

February 3, 2006

By the great Peter Bagge, this is a helluva book with 336 pages of black and white humor. The complete Buddy Bradley stories from Bagge’s Hate comics Vol. 1.

The Snow Prince – Review

February 3, 2006

I enjoyed the last two pages: A story he wrote for his niece when she was upset about moving. It hilarious and better by far than the rest of the book.

The Jungle – Review

February 3, 2006

Someone finally got it right. The artwork in The Jungle is cubist and raw, boxy and sad. The colors are simple, depressing, and magnificent.

Pirate Club – #6 – Review

February 3, 2006

Legend of Zelda with ass-kicking Japanation at it’s best. The art is very pleasing to the eye: Boxy, sharp angles, a video game without the pixilation.

NIL – A Land Beyond Belief – Review

February 3, 2006

Simple, black and white, blocky, boxy and art deco, with all the factories, wheels, and cogs for a backdrop. The story is slow at first, worth your time.

Devilboy in the Land of Love – Review

February 3, 2006

This is Edward Gorey and Shel Silverstein after they finish off a handle of Jack and double-team Mother Goose, the sick fucks. Juvenile, silly, and I like it.

Bear – #8 – Review

February 3, 2006

The set up is similar to Garfield, except instead of a dog, it’s a bear, and instead of being stupid, it’s quite smart. And Looshkin is WAY more fucked up.

Lenore – #12 – Review

February 3, 2006

I thought the “cute little dead girl” gig would run out, but 12 issues deep, it’s still just as witty, innocent, raunchy, and chalk fulla potty-mouthed humor.

Haunted Mansion – #1 – Review

February 3, 2006

Different stories by different authors based on the Disney attraction, The Haunted Mansion. It sounds pretty lame, but don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it.
