Eye of the Majestic Creature Vol. 2 by Leslie Stein

LARRYBEAR HAS MOVED TO THE CITY IN NEW VOLUME

Eye of the Majestic Creature Vol. 2 is the second book collecting Leslie Stein’s loose, funny and charming autobiographical narratives that combine idiosyncratic fantasy and stark reality. Larrybear, our hero, has moved from the countryside to the city, where she finds work as a shop girl. Quotes from Theodore Dreiser’s Sister Carrie are sprinkled throughout the story to add humor and poignancy. Stein then takes us back to a childhood in the ’80s filled with odd experiences including joining a rock band with older people, sitting in on her mother’s AA groups, and the mystery of the disappearing gumballs. Finally, a fun story in which Larrybear and her new friend, Poppin the Flower go on a strange trip to see his father. Let us not forget that Marshmallow, Ping-Ping and Mimolette, Larry’s walking and talking instruments, have adventures all their own.

Stein’s gorgeous cartooning, highlighted by incredibly detailed stippling, and her dry sense of humor combine to make one of the most unique and immersive narrative experiences in comics.

Reviewsy Bits

I’m going back through links that I’ve saved since January, so some of these may be a blast from the past, but hopefully most of them are exposing you to a comic you missed!

  • The Beat has an advanced review of Saga #1
  • Zoe/Wolverina reviews Womanthology on her podcast “How I Got My Boyfriend To Read Comics”!
  • The OuthousersBleedingCoolKelly Thompson and Blog@Newsarama on Grace Randolph’s Supurbia #1
  • Arthur and Posy, and indie comic from the UK, written by Ella Risbridger, earned this praise from Forbidden Planet:
    I’ve got to say, I was pretty much sold on it from the start. There’s a sweetness here, a delightful innocence about the pair. It’s got the feel of a somewhat off-kilter children’s book. Albeit a children’s book that looks like it’s going to be messing around with all sorts of gender roles and religious prejudices. And I’m intrigued and involved with the characters after just this short first issue to want to know much more.
  • Forbidden Planet has also looked at Karrie Fransman’s ambitious The House that Groaned, Magda Boreysza’s “dreamlike and beautiful” Toasty Cats #6, Jenika Ioffreda’s quirky gothic love story Vampire Free Style #6, Maura McHugh’s Róisín Dubh #2 (with “Celtic zombie-slaying action”), and Leeann Hamiliton’s “remarkably clever” Irish myth-inspired Finn & Fish.
  • Jamaica Dyer guest-posted on Robot 6, and she had this to say about the first Conan the Barbarian issue from Brian Wood and Becky Cloonan:
    I picked up the first issue of the new Conan the Barbarian, and I’m kind of bummed out by how cool it is. Becky Cloonan’s art is amazing, Brian Wood’s writing is compelling, and not only is Conan pretty fun to look at, but the Queen is dead-hot. The fantasy sequences are really well-done, though the action sequences are a little hard to follow. Why am I bummed out by it? Because I was dreaming of doing an indie adaptation of Conan, and it appears that the king and queen of indie comics just took up the mantle. You know what they say, “Conan, what is best in life? …”
  • J. Caleb Mozzocco found Nancy Goldstein’s Jackie Ormes biography excellent despite its limitations due to lack of primary sources
  • Johanna Draper Carlson recommends Faith Erin Hicks’s Friends with Boys.
  • Pink Raygun's Lisa “Alpha-Girl” Fary has some thought-provoking criticism of Phil and Kaja Foglio's Girl Genius Omnibus vol. 1
  • iFanboy says that Corinna Bechko and Gabriel Hardman’s Heathentown is “undead horror born again on the bayou, perfect for anybody looking for the modern response to Creepy and other classic black & white tales of terror.”
  • Spandexless says of John Ostrander and Jan Duursema’s Dawn of the Jedi #1, ”For a first issue, it’s a well done beginning to a new chapter in the Star Wars saga, and though it has many elements that have been done before, when has that ever stopped anyone from enjoying more Star Wars?”
  • And Greg Burgas of “Comics Should Be Good” takes a look at Mary and Bryan Talbot’s Dotter of her Father’s Eyes.

Randolph elaborates:

Like most readers, I really love superhero comics so I’m excited to explore them in a different way.  We always follow the hero as he swoops off, but what if we stayed behind with his girlfriend?  What is it REALLY like to live with a superhero?  I hope everyone will pick-up “Supurbia” as it looks to answer those questions and more.

Sounds like it will be a “juicier” version of Love and Capes, and I can’t wait to check it out!
