If you’ve wanted to get a feel of Brian Evenson’s (amazing!) new book on Chester Brown’s Yummy Fur and Ed the Happy Clown, check out this excerpt from Ed vs. Yummy Fur over at The Comics Journal. The book is the inaugural volume in Critical Cartoons, a new series of books of comics criticism. The second volume will be Carl Barks’ Duck by Peter Schilling Jr. More on that and the series, soon!
Brian Evenson is an amazing writer. For those that don’t know his work, check out The Open Curtain, Last Days, Windeye, Immobility, and Fugue State (illustrated by Zak Sally!)… AND he’s also the translator on David B.’s Incidents in the Night! I’m really happy I was able to talk him into the project.
