Bolland Strips!

    (Knockabout, 2005)
™ and © Knockabout

Brian Bolland is probably best-known for his superhero work: Animal Man, Batman: The Killing Joke, and some memorable Wonder Woman covers. As this collection of his one-page comic strips and short stories reveals, Bolland’s work is far richer and more diverse than his super-hero resume would indicate. Beautiful women, ordinary men, wart-covered amphibians, religious figures—these and other clever and funny characters populate this oversized book’s hilarious, sad, touching, and witty episodes. One series focuses on the minor adventures of an actress and bishop, while another features a homely man who may or may not be imagining visits from a beautiful woman—it’s hard to tell when she keeps disappearing on him.

Some of these stories originally appeared in DC anthologies; others appear here for the first time. A funny and unique hardbound volume.
