BLUBBER HC (A)
(W) Gilbert Hernandez Collecting the first five issues of Gilbert Hernandez's comic book series Blubber, an absurdly X-rated showcase for the most surreally transgressive of Hernandez's short stories. Weirdos (Blubberoo, Mr. Elvis, John Dick, the Mentor), creatures (the Mau Guag, Doogs, and Orlats?), and anthropomorphs (the Cloarks, the Kekeppy) visit places where most comics fear to go. Blubber veers between an absurdist satire of porn (and occasionally nature documentaries) as well as a defiant provocation to those unable to appreciate the difference between cartooning and obscenity. As R. Crumb said, 'It's only lines on paper, folks!' It is also a howlingly funny book, filled with a rogues gallery of colorful comic book monsters (the Pollum, the Junipero Molestat, the mythical Forest Nimmy) and characters (T.A.C. Man, Mr. Hippy, Padre Puto, the Snowman, Baron Mungo, Red Tempest) that echoes the sheer visual imagination of Jack Kirby.

HERNANDEZ HYPNOTWIST HC
(W/A/CA) Gilbert Hernandez Collects (and expands!) the graphic novellas 'Hypnotwist' and 'Scarlet by Starlight' from Love and Rockets: New Stories in a handsome 'Double Feature' package. In the Eisner Award-winning wordless comic (silent movie?) 'Hypnotwist,' Hernandez's B-movie star Fritz plays a character who doesn't seem to be going anywhere, until she puts on a pair of glittery pumps. Her wanderings become increasingly surreal as she confronts motherhood, alcoholism, a sinister smiley face, cruelty, and her worst fate: 'Killer' cameos! Includes 16 pages of previously unpublished, additional material. 'Scarlet by Starlight' is a B movie that's Star Trek meets Heart of Darkness. 'Scientists,' or colonizers, are doing research, surrounded by 'primitive' fauna they affectionately nickname or treat like pests. Fritz plays Scarlet, a peaceful, catlike humanoid with a mate and children. When she becomes infatuated with one of the scientists, the fragile web of relationships explodes into violence and death, calling into question who the 'advanced, civilized' creatures really are.
