    Has anyone read his House on the Borderland? Great novel so I assume I'm on safe ground if I pick this up.

    SATANIA
    Written by Fabien Vehlmann, Art by Kerascoët

    While searching in a cave for her lost brother a woman and a search team get swept deep into the earth and they slowly descend into Hell. While trying to find a way out they learn how to survive in Hell's ever changing upside-down landscape, and still holding out hope she'll find her brother.

    And what a journey it is! It starts with a team of folks from the local town, (somewhere unnamed in Europe), searching in a cave for a woman's lost brother. The brother is an author who wrote a book theorizing that Neanderthal man fled into the earth during the ice age and evolved into a different but intelligent creature than humans. Basically that what we think of as Hell and demons can be explained away by science.

    This was an incredibly phantasmagoric journey that's similar to the authors previous work, BEAUTIFUL DARKNESS, its children's-book-like art belies the dark tale being told. The sense of dread and claustrophobia builds perfectly. The art from the husband/wife team, Kerascoët, is at times jaw dropping and stunning. They have an endless sense of imagination that even though it looks like a kid's book you believe that maybe this could be Hell. The first half takes place in dark caves and is mostly various shades of grey and brown, then it explodes in the second half into a vibrant collage of gorgeous watercolors depicting all kinds of gross creepy stuff. It's great.

    Can't recommend it enough, or the author's previous book; Beautiful Darkness.
    And also with art by Kerascoët and written by Hubert; Beauty, Miss Don't Touch Me.

    You guys are welcome! Eventually I'll get around to the other Kerascoët books which are all pretty great, imo.

    Comic books -- oooh yeah, I love comic books and drinkin weed and smoking bourbon!

    I was fingering my collection and came across this underground gem...





    I don't have many floppies left but I swear, every other one I do have is signed. I don't even remember getting this signed, I think it was at a panel promoting LEGEND, Dark Horse's then imprint for Frank Miller, Geof Darrow, Art Adams and Mike Mignola. This is the first issue of BIG GUY & RUSTY THE BOY ROBOT. Great dinosaury monster by Darrow!



    I've been reading and collecting all the Modesty Blaise comics strips and have moved on to the wonderful prose novels by creator Peter O'Donnell. At the end of the story OLD ALEX in the final prose novel, COBRA TRAP, (which is a short story collection), Modesty calls an old man Toyboy, telling him if he was younger she'd make him her Toyboy. "Toyboy!", he exclaimed. What's that?



    And in the last story of COBRA TRAP, Modesty dies. I read it about an hour ago and cried like a damn baby. That was fine pulp writin', O'Donnell, you cunt!
