Overview

Volume 4 continues with an international roundup, kicking off with the 54-page "The Adventures of Herge", by French cartoonist Stanislas (written by Bocquet and Fromental), a compelling, meticulously-researched biography of Tintin's famed creator. New cartoonist Miriam Katin explores terrifying childhood memories in Hungary during the time of the Soviet invasion in 1956 and French cartoonist Blutch provides another brutal look at the unsavory history of boxing. Other highlights include "The Bleeding Tree", a haunting story by new Swiss cartoonist Nicolas Robel, a new full color strip by Ron Rege Jr, and the return of R. Sikoryak, with his retelling of "The Scarlet Letter" as seen through the eyes of...Little Lulu?! This edition also includes an expanded "Archives" section, with another breathtaking 30 page overview of Frank King's Gasoline Alley Sunday pages in color, focusing on the early years of the strip from 1922 through 1925. D&Q will also delve into the past with an impressive 20 page "poster gallery" of Harry Mayerovitch's stunning World War Two posters he produced at the time for Canada's National Film Board, none of which have been reproduced in color since the 1940's! Covers and endpapers by noted illustrator Steven Guarnaccia.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Drawn & Quarterly's significance as a comic book publisher is evident in its latest anthology, an oversized, full-color, beautifully produced paperback featuring the work of 10 cartoonists and illustrators from Europe and North America. The volume provides both a sense of comics over the last 75 years and an idea of where the medium is heading. The star of this issue is the seminal cartoonist Frank King, creator of the long-running newspaper strip, Gasoline Alley. Not only were King's Sunday strips stunningly beautiful, but he created the first "funny page" characters that actually aged. Included here is a piece written by King about Gasoline Alley, and 30 full-color Sunday strips from the '20s and '30s. A series of strips and covers drawn in King's style by celebrated comics artist Chris Ware completes the homage. R. Sikoryak's Dostoyevsky Comics is drawn in the style of Bob Kane's 1950s Batman comics, creating a strip that cleverly deconstructs the graphic novel Batman: Two-Face--Crime and Punishment, Russian literature and American comic books. New Yorker cartoonists Dupuy and Berberian's 55-page "Monsieur Jean" is the sophisticated story of a novelist and his rather complicated personal life. Imitating the style of an airline safety card, Jason Little's "Safety Instructions" details a sudden emergency on a Virgin airlines flight that prompts two abruptly amorous young passengers to realize they both have "things I need to do before I die." This is an impressive, wide-ranging and international collection of illustrated storytelling. (Sept.) Copyright 2000 Cahners Business Information.|
Jeff Jensen
This anthology of foreign and out-of-the-mainstream cartoonists is like an avant-garde multiplex: sometimes pretentious, sometimes revelatory, always interesting. This latest volume, the third is the most consistently enjoyable yet...The strips reflect an inventiveness on a par with masters like Winsor McCay and Will Eisner but rarely attempted today.
