Optic Nerve - Shortcomings TP

Bestellnummer: 98859
Preis: 14,95

Ben Tanaka has problems. In addition to being rampantly critical, sarcastic, and insensitive, his long-term relationship is awash in turmoil. His girlfriend, Miko Hayashi, suspects that Ben has a wandering eye, and more to the point, it's wandering in the direction of white women. This accusation (and its various implications) becomes the subject of heated, spiralling debate, setting in motion a story that pits California against New York, devotion against desire, and trust against truth. By confusing their personal problems with political ones, Ben and Miko are strangely alone together and oddly alike, even as they fly apart. The charged, volatile dialogues that result are unlike anything in Tomine's previous work or, for that matter, comics in general. But Shortcomings is no mere polemic. Any issues that are raised stand on equal footing with expertly-crafted plot turns, subtle characterization, and irreverent humor, all drawn in Tomine's heart-breakingly evocative style. A brutal, funny, and insightful reflection of human shortcomings. Originally serialized in "Optic Nerve."

klassische US Horror Comics

Bis vor ein paar Jahren konnte man sie sich für ein paar Mark kaufen und nun sind sie fast verschwunden, die gruseligen Creepy und Eerie Comics über die man immer fiel weil sie in vielen Comicshops kniehoch gestapelt am Boden lagen.

Verglichen mit Serien wie Batman oder Spidey interessierte sich niemand so wirklich für die Teile obwohl in den Comics geniale Zeichner und Autoren zu finden waren. Glücklicherweise legt Dark Horse seit einiger Zeit die beiden Serien als Hardcover-Bände auf.

Dark Horse Comics further corners the market on high quality horror storytelling with one of the most anticipated releases of the decade, a hardcover archive collection of legendary Creepy Magazine. This groundbreaking material turned the world of graphic storytelling on its head in the early 1960s, as phenomenal young artists like Bernie Wrightson and Neal Adams reached new artistic heights with their fascinating explorations of classic and modern horror stories. Brilliant, classic Creepy stories from 1964-1966 are now

 raised from the dead after twenty-five years, with work by such comics luminaries as Joe Orlando, Al Williamson, Alex Toth, and Frank Frazetta. Volume One reprints the first five terrifying issues of the magazine's original run, reprinted in the original magazine size!
