Overview

Regressive Count and other supernumerary fables has a very interesting characteristic from the beginning. While in the book's previous phases it was characterized as humoristic, scatologic, pornographic, in this one Vega-Gil is showing us his obsession for subjects that range from delirium - full of strambotic and fabrile mythology, that seems to come from an explosion of the nightmare-like Mexican dream, up to fantastic and universal happenings that allow to present the ultimate possibilities of a language which was created based on games and imagination. An exemplary work as to its humor, irony and inter-textualization with round, neatly solved stories. The world of Armando Vega-Gil seems to come from -in its darkest parts-, some sort of mystical revelation within a fatal, decadent world, while the other, the most lubric and conscupiscent, is recognized in the pedestrian and barbarian Mexican folklore.
