Big Black Thing (Colin UptonísÖ)

 BBTU   (Starhead, 1994)

Colin Uptonís ďBig ThingĒ books for Fantagraphics were something of a prank carried to the level of obsession. That four-issue series had long since been cancelled when the joke began anew with Big Black Thing, published by Seattle Washingtonís Starhead Comix.

Inside this Big Black Thing youíll find socialist turtles, ornery bus riders, and the mystery of the foreign money found under the cushions of the couch. Funniest of the bunch, however, are the goofy Hotxha the Albanian and the straitlaced but cheerfully homicidal Happy Ned. Of course, thereís much more, all rendered in Uptonís clear, slightly whimsical art style. To find out about it, youíll have to open a Big Black Thing for yourself.
