Jules Feiffer: Kill my Mother GN august 25, 2014

amazon.com beskriver den nye GN fra den legendariske bladtegner Jules Feiffer, som værende hans første graphic novel. Dette er dog ikke helt rigtigt, idet han så tidligt som i 1979 fik udgivet en af de allerførste graphic novels i hc på Alfred A. Knopf, “Tantrum”, en bog, der er blevet genoptrykt af Fantagraphics, forlaget, der specialiserer sig i Feifferske genoptryk. Herhjemme har det været småt med Feiffer på tryk, kun Kvinderotten Harry (amrk. Harry the Rat With Women, 1963) kan jeg komme i tanker om. Feiffer er nu 84 år og stadig aktiv som lærer og som tegner, nu senest med “Kill my Mother”, en 160 sider lang hc GN, der udkommer på Liveright til august. Feiffer har tegnet professionelt siden han var 16 år gammel og har ovenikøbet vundet den prestige-fyldte Pulitzer pris, som een af de få serietegnere. Sammen med diverse genoptryk på Fanta er det nu muligt at komme til bunds i denne legendes lange og brogede karriere.

amazon.com review:

A literary event to be celebrated, the first graphic novel—an explosive, fast-paced thriller—by the legendary, Pulitzer Prize–winning American cartoonist.

Jules Feiffer’s first graphic novel begins on the West Coast in the Depression years of the 1930s and ends in Hollywood and the South Pacific during World War II. Kill My Mother centers on five formidable women from two unrelated families, linked fatefully and fatally by a has-been, hard-drinking private detective. Feiffer unleashes a decade-long drama of deception, dual identities, mayhem, and murder, nonetheless laced with the deft humor characteristic of all his work from his groundbreaking Village Voice comic strip to Carnal Knowledge. Now in his eighties, the Oscar-winning cartoonist harkens back to early boyhood influences and reinvents himself, merging his crafts as cartoonist, playwright, and screenwriter. Feiffer draws from the adventure newspaper strips, detective fiction, and noir films of his youth, channeling Will Eisner’s The Spirit, Hammett, Chandler, Cain, John Huston, and Billy Wilder. Rendered in stark atmospheric images, Kill My Mother moves like the movies they don’t make anymore. Color illustrations
