Overview

Brian Evenson delves deeply into the pages of Chester Brown’s (Louis Riel, Paying for It) seminal comic-book Yummy Fur, from its beginnings as a mini comic to its afterlife in the graphic novels it spawned. Brian's comics archaeology excavates the discarded fragments of Brown's masterpiece Ed The Happy Clown, examines the never re-printed adaptions of the Gospels, considers the juxtaposition of religion and absurdism, and meditates on the pleasures of reading serialized pamphlet comic books. The book also features a new interview with Chester Brown, shining a new spotlight on this important work.

Brian Evenson is the author of eleven prize-winning books of fiction, including The Open Curtain, Last Days, Windeye, and Immobility. His work has been translated into over a dozen languages. He lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island, where he teaches at Brown University.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“In this illuminating look at Chester Brown’s Ed the Happy Clown, Brian Evenson uses an array of critical approaches to tell a compelling story about Brown, not only as a cartoonist and intellectual, but as an obsessive reviser of his own work. Evenson reveals the dramatic effects that Brown’s revisions, even minor changes to a drawing or a panel’s placement, have on his comics. With Ed vs. Yummy Fur, Brown’s work finally gets the sustained attention it deserves.”—Ken Parille, editor of The Daniel Clowes Reader
