JimboAdventures in Paradise
by Gary Panter, foreword by Ed Ruscha, afterword by Nicole Rudick
Veering between the crude and the elegant, the wise and the funny, Jimbo: Adventures in Paradise proves Panter is a master of cartooning, and still way ahead of the rest of us.
Gary Panter is deeply good, wise, and humble, despite possessing an inimitable sense of line and color, an extraterrestrial imagination, and a direct pipeline to his kid self. I’d say he was my role model if I could only aspire that high.
Jimbo: Adventures in Paradise is a Panter essential, a comics game changer, and one of my absolute favorites of his many mind-altering masterpieces. Punk rock becomes a symphony, panels blend and create an abstract pool, both shocking and refreshing.
Is Jimbo: Adventures in Paradise another mind-blowing, oversized masterpiece from the legendary ink-spattered Gary Panter? I say yes. And I also say: Collect Them All!
