Ben Catmull's "Monster Parade"
One of the few comic purchases I've made this year, Monster Parade is a short anthology about my favorite subject matter. It opens with a person watching a storm brewing across the sky. From it waltzes a giant four armed old man throwing lightning bolts. Then comes a giant bird like creatures squaking, after that a floating whale with eyes lined down the sides of its body, incredibly strange imagery for the opening of a book. The rest of the comic involves a monster on a train, a description of a bizarre town where people fish for unusual sea life in a river, are haunted by unusual demons on the toilet, are subject to giant crazed apes who terrorize the town late at night, and are watched from across the river by peculiar monsters, fantastic stuff. I encourage anyone that is a fan of this blog to purchase this book, you won't be dissapointed.
