I was a precocious reader and desperate to be treated like a grown-up, so I read books for grown-ups because anything else was just too puerile for someone as obviously mature and sophisticated as I.
Are you the little girl I heard crying? Was it some kind of automobile? I am so sorry… Here, take my handkerchief. Please allow me to introduce myself. But you can call me Panther! We Panthers go wherever we please! Christine, how dare you? Which, I should add, will be entirely what Brecht Evens intended.
Casting my mind back to NIGHT ANIMALS, where a young girl suddenly spontaneously matures physically, experiences her first period, and is whisked away from her soft toy strewn bed by the Devil to a wild orgy full of terrifying creatures in a forest, before she vanishes forever inside a strange birdman, there are clearly some parallels here.
Askance ones at least. You might also find it difficult not to conclude that the Panther is her father… I have on the other hand heard it suggested that this is a story of initial sexual awakening, emergence from adolescence, and the Panther is indeed merely an internal representative figure.
You can always tell, though, that he is being somewhat parsimonious with the truth. When not being downright evasive… Art-wise, well, wow!
The cover is an extremely accurate representation of the kaleidoscopic illustrations you will find within. Already one of the most unique and inventive artists out there, Brecht has taken it to new levels here. What also furthers the discomfort regarding the identity of the Panther is his amorphous features, indeed his entire head, and also sometimes even his body.
Once again Brecht also eschews the need for panel or page borders, indeed even pencils, just getting his watercolours straight down on the page. It adds a certain fairytale quality here in places. Overall, between the psychedelic art and the frenetic, fluid, false showman that is the Panther, there is a real Alice In Wonderland feel to this work.
I closed the book feeling disturbed and delighted in equal measure. JR Bad Machinery vol 5: So, the tween detectives of Griswalds Grammar School return with more musings on life, love and lessons, all the whilst attempting to crack another confounding case. Think she… I think she… turned up at school and sat next to me.
Did you take anything from the beach? John sets up verbal punchline after punchline, page after page. Truly was life ever once so simple but simultaneously so fantastically complicated in such an emotionally jumbled up hormone infused manner?
Indeed it was and what a pleasure it is to vicariously read all about it without actually having to go through it all again! In terms of his art, I continue to marvel at how deceptively simple it looks. I truly want to believe there is an arcade game called King Beaver in which it is possible to enter Beavergeddon Mode!
It would be fair to say his style has attracted more than a few imitators in recent years, yet they are mere contenders compared to John. God, girls, crushes, friendship, promises, life, death by environmental disaster, dreams… Why his father decided to smack his mother into the middle of next week and then blame a burglar… That was particularly flimsy.
Also, it renders him mute. His friends and relatives tend to interpret how tongue-tied Punpun is coping with the world by asking him questions for him to respond to with vigorous nodding, timorous, alarmed eyes, a hastily beaten retreat or full-on floods of tears.
On the other hand, the world as presented to him is all kinds of crackers. Then he ran away. Did I mention that Punpun is drawn as a sort of cartoon bird-ghost with little stick legs.? However much he strives to keep it at bay.
