The Many Deaths of Scott Koblish = 90 pages of the author envisioning his own death.
This whimsical collection of 4-panel comics will sate everyone’s need for schadenfreude. Koblish’s work is zany and can be so delightfully cruel. Sans dialogue, but with fun ironic titles, these miniature stories have a surprising depth of understanding of our many anxieties, fears, and angst. They are drawn in black and white, but many times use color to emphasize the agent of death.
LOOK OUT SCOTT! You might choke yourself on “The Most Important Meal of the Day” or those pigeons may literally bite the hand that feeds them…
5 out of 5 stars.
Comes out on May 1st, 2018.
Thank you to NetGalley, Chronicle Books, and Mr. Koblish for the advanced copy for review.
