A very strange graphic novel. Menz and Jaz live in the Mental Plane, a sort of Wackyland where the minds of insane people drift off to. The characters are drawn in two different styles, Menz looks like a cartoon mad scientist and Jaz is drawn like a 1940's pin-up girl. They wander around crazytown sharing lame jokes about being crazy until we get to the finale which is actually quite dark. I can't explain it without spoiling it, but there are some very disturbing elements to the reality of the c...more
There is one and only one reason I own this book: John Bolton. Because let me tell you, this is one of the dumbest things I've ever read. Basically, we're on the Mental Plane, where lost minds go to hang out or do whatever. We follow Menz Insana and his gal-pal Jaz (can you believe this is from the late 90s and not the mid-80s?) as they have minor adventures until she finally presses him to show her who she really is on the Physical Plane (i.e., the real world).

A inversão das lógicas e um certo humor negro dão algum interesse a esta graphic novel. Mas a conjugação do estilo gráfico limpo de John Bolton e um argumento previsível deixam Menz Insana muito aquém do que poderia ser. As partes da narrativa passadas num mundo mental onde a loucura é a normalidade dissolvem-se num plot twist relativamente banal de vinganças em asilos de lunáticos.

A bit of a blast from the past here....a graphic novel by Christopher Fowler from 1997, Menz Insana is the story of Menz & jez, inhabitants of the mental plane, & their attempts to find their physical bodies....

Good fun, well-illustrated by John Bolton,& with the twist you'd expect from Mr Fowler.....definitely worth a look.
