by Tom Horacek
The first collection of one panel cartoons by this dude from British Columbia. Dark, bitter, hilarious. I really wanted to write something awesome about this, but the little blurb on the back of the book is so much better:
"Tom Horacek's characters possess the hydrocephalic proportions of Playmobil people, but they've traded the colorful plastic environs of childhood for a bleaker, twisted landscape where insanity, lonliness, and death are fodder for laughs. Heard from their pinhole mouths and seen in their beady eyes is fear, desperation, resignation, and pure misanthropy, all presented across a single panel canvas. Join the fun with this first collection of Horacek's bitingly bitter gag cartoons."
Good show, my man.
