But here’s the thing. In addition to my inexperience. I’m also lazy. How so lazy?
Because Mr. Matt Fraction gave me an opportunity to ask some follow up questions and dig deeper. And I did not read into his comments about how he’s worked with nothing but awesome artists as a good segue to go into his earliest work.
Why is your boy being so wistful? Because your boy just read The Annotated Mantooth.
And in this book so many questions popped into my head? Can you take credit for the styilistic influence of Warren Ellis’ Nextwave? How could an aspiring writer make his profanity so creative? Is Ron jeremy the Nikola Tesla of porn? And so much more.
The book is simply beatiful. What if James Bond was a monkey? And what if Ian Fleming was drunk when he wrote it? And while it might be a little more alternative than the tastes of the Average comics fan, getting this graphic novel comes with prose. Awesome purple prose.
I give this book my highest recommendation. Buy it or Zombie Steven Hawking will eat you.
11 out of 12!
