Overview

"Eccentrically impressive." "Ray Olson, Booklist

"Nobody can touch Renee French for sweet fiendishness." -- Jim Woodring

"Renee French has long been one of my favorite artists and she doesn't disappoint in her latest work. Tiny creatures in tiny drawings with lots of crapballs makes this another freakish delight that also winds up being strangely touching." -- Jenna Fischer (Pam, on The Office)

Micrographica takes Renée French's Ignatz award nominated online strip of the same name and turns it way up. A mob of tiny rodents live la vida loca, led by the trash-talking bully Moe, and his trash-talking sidekick Preston. Add in Nubbins, the big guy; poor, sweet crapball-lovin' Aldo; and a rotting corpse turned playground, and you'll never find a more moving affirmation of traditional values. Inspired by a bald bird sighting while the author was wandering Hunter's Hill in Sydney, Australia, this book is pure weirdness -- just what Renée French fans dream of. With guest drawings by Jim Woodring, Penn Jillette, Dean Cameron, Dylan Williams, James Gunn and more.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Beautifully written and spare like Beckett, only far, far more entertaining, this book about four rats arguing over a ball of crap has strong indie cred but quietly channels something deeper. Moe and his friend Preston, who suffers from a swollen nose when upset, find a small crap ball, which Aldo cherishes; Moe tries to pretend he and Preston aren't interested so the loser rat will leave their plaything alone. Aldo breaks the ball, and a fat rat with eczema around its nipples persuades him to go on a journey to a mythically large pile of crap to get more. Meanwhile, Moe and Preston play on a corpse while Moe insults Preston's mother. The art is rough black lines on a white background, a stark departure from the author's usual beautifully shaded drawings, and the book resembles a little self-published thing-but the art and binding fit the story completely. Darkly funny and truly excellent, with a hint of the spiritual in its obscenity, it's reminiscent of Anders Nilsen's Dogs and Waterbut nastier and more likely to make you laugh. The dialogue is truly superb. (May)
