I think too many indie comic writers rely on Daniel Clowes surrealism too much nowadays... enjoyed none the least.
or something, idk
anyway, you know what would cheer you up?
well, not me personally, rather boobs in .gif form.
been poisoned with some manner of poison?
attacked by feral dogs?
but those fiery biscuits away :D
I'll never be the man you want me to be drakepress!
I won't pressure you into anything, we can take it slow. Just start with a few highlights, see how it makes you feel.
there wasn't any surrealism so far. Obvious similarities to Daniel Clowes though.
It took me a while to get in Tomine's short stories in 'Sleepwalk' but I really like the longer stuff in this. It's all a little oddly depressing but great if you're in that kind of torpor.
Although the one about the guy and the cake in Sleepwalk is good.
tomine gets accused of ripping off clowes alot but they are friends and I think the influence goes both ways, later clowes is more tomine like than tomine is clowes like in my opinion. Tomine is frustrating in his unprolificness.
and this has also reminded me that I still don't own Shortcomings.
All the stuff in 'Sleepwalk' and 'Summer Blonde' is too short for my liking.
