Episode 299: Dörfler
Strange inter-dimensional creatures live in the ancient lands of the Northern Mountains, where electronic and engine powered machinery is rendered inoperable. The city is a police state where the military subjects its citizens to experiments that turn memory and identity into malleable, political tools. While one woman wreaks havoc against the totalitarian state in revenge for what they’d done to her, two lovers wander through the Northern Mountains trying to distinguish between real and false memories.
Music by Man or Astroman?, Morcheeba, and Dead Kennedys

Apologies for my tardiness, I got a bit behind on my listening. Really want to thank you both for reviewing this book and for your kind words. Just trying to show my appreciation for the podcast. Got to say even though the book wasn’t really to your liking, I really enjoyed listening to both of you break it down. Super entertaining as always. I did enjoy the book myself but didn’t understand it any more than you two. I am in love with Jeremy Baum’s art though and that is always enough for me. Really glad to hear you both enjoyed that aspect of it. His previous work is almost exclusively silent so I think I’ve gotten used to treating them as nice art books as Eric put it. I believe he is really into mysticism and the like as well (subjects I know nothing about) so I go in assuming most of his symbolism is going to go over my head anyway. Thanks again for taking the time to review it and for the podcast.
I was a little more with Jason on this. I met Jeremy at SPACE this year. He had the book upside down with Bowie on the back cover because there were kids running around and there’s nudity on the front. He was really quiet and reserved. But I really loved that book. I read a lot of indie comics this year, and that book was incredibly unique. I didn’t understand it, but took it as most people here and accepted it as an art book.
