Description

Out of print.

The cult horror classic. From 2009, a collection of the acclaimed cartoonist Columbia's unfinished drawings and panels in progress. Presented without comment and without relief, the effect is a growing discomfort and cumulative dis-ease.

Columbia's artwork is stylistically similar to Chris Ware's Acme Library and James Jean's first Process Recess.

From the publisher:

Collecting more than a decade's worth of excavations, comic strips, animation stills, storybook covers, and much more, this broken jigsaw puzzle of a graphic novel tells the story of Pim & Francie -- childlike male and female imps -- whose irresponsible antics get them into horrific, fantastic trouble. The brilliant, fairy tale-like backdrops hint at further layers of reality lurking under every gingerbread house or behind every sunny afternoon. Their loosely defined relationship only contributes to the existential fear that lingers underneath the various perils they are subjected to, which are threaded together by text and notes by the artist.
