Loved this one!
Is this a vote to get rid of the free-wheeling loose rambly format?
I haven’t read this book (& probably won’t) as this story concept really creeps me out. I think any guy who’s been significantly burned by a woman could easily come to the conclusion of Chester Brown (or on the other extreme (or maybe a variant of the same extreme?) Dave Sim) & I like to try to keep from thinking that way (I have enough issues with women as Lost Kisses #6-#8 attest to). But I guess this book is just the next stage of the new cool thing of confessionals about masturbation (which the Veggie Dog Saturn one is fine because it’s funny, but the straight ones I guess are supposed to be shocking but are instead just juvenile to me).
You know Chester Brown is running for office in Canada on some libertarian ticket?
There was a friend of mine that was on a dating site & he’d save the girls’ profile images & then do reviews of first dates on his blog. It was kind of funny in one way, but sometimes went totally creepy. Funny is when it talks about a girl wearing the same green hat that she knitted herself as featured in her profile photo. Creepy is when he ends up having sex with the girl & her photo just looks like the clerk at the grocery store or something where it’s someone you never even think of them as having sexual parts.
There’s definitely a problem where some of the people reviewing my comics are also reviewing Superman comics. “If this Kurt Dinse guy was drawing Superman, he’d totally get fired!” But I also think (or I wouldn’t be doing my comics at all) that the Silber comics are better than the average DC/Marvel book. If not better to everyone, at least better to me.
Look at all these parentheses, you’d think I just read a John O’Brien book….
I agree with you that prostitution could easily be an option for a guy who’s been burned, but they way Brown presents it in the book, he would claim that he wasn’t. In my opinion, he was, but he’s in denial.
I’m a guy who likes your books and the occasional Superman, but I also view comics the way I view any entertainment, there’s more than one genre. It’s so odd that a vast majority of comic fans will love all different types of movies and music, etc., but when it comes to comics, they only like one type, or slight variations of it.
I for one would love to see Kurt Dinse draw a Superman book.
