MGA KASALUKUYANG BINABASA

“dennis the menace doesn’t look like his father. could he be illegitimate?”

“McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern Issue 13” by Chris Ware. dahil na impress ako ng husto sa award winning “jimmy corrigan, the smartest kid on earth” graphic novel, susubukan ko itong bagong anthology na edited ni ware. sa cover pa lang mukhang pamatay na – it unfolds into a huge supplementary cartoon na puno ng mga maliliit na panels with intricately drawn scenes that is so typical of ware’s comic books. featured din ang mga rough sketches ni peanuts creator charles schulz at naroon din si art spiegelman, ang author ng pulitzer prize winning comics na “maus“.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen – Volume II by alan moore. kalimutan na ninyo yung pangit na film adaptation and just concentrate on the graphic novel. dito sa 2nd installment ay tuloy na naman ang mga adventures ng grupo. and like the first volume, this one rocks. the story revolves around the “war of the worlds theme” pero nagulat ako dahil nagkatuluyan pala si allan quartermain at si mina. nag sex nga sila eh (ng maraming beses) – very graphic. hehe. ang galing – if you have time to read just one book, make it this one. or, make it chris ware’s book. either of the two will do.

  1. both are good tito rolly. not only are they great reads, both are also great works of art. it would appeal to you dahil sa background mo as an art teacher.

    tanong mo kay doc emer. mahilig din siya sa ganitong genre (dyen-reh? diyan-rah gago! hehehe).

  2. hi loryces.

    eh pag nag apple to apple comparison ka between the movie and the novel. hands down na winner ang novel ni alan moore.

    siguro then relative yon pero general consensus ay walang binatbat ang film from the original novel.
