Someone who didn't feel like this book was crazy enough put it into an online autoscroll format with creepy circus techno music. I have no idea if this makes the book better, but I do believe reading it any other way might not feel so acutely like you're going insane while reading it, and would thus be an inferior experience.

Very quick read, about 50 short pages of one and two line text to go with the comic artwork. The version I read was an original, Wishbone studios copy signed by Shaky Kane himself. The story is part sci-fi, part acid trip. Filled with monsters, zombies, and plenty of giant eyeballs. My favorite part: the transformation of the protagonist's vehicle into a "monster truck". Visually thrilling.

Carros, monstros, aviões, mulheres sexy, e cor, muita cor. Cor gritante que agride os olhos num álbum absurdista, caderno de desenhos fetishista que seduz pelo puro gozo espalhado pelas páginas. Uma colisão entre o lápis e a cultura pop, despejada em quadricromia nas páginas de um livro.

Strange, weird, and wonderful. Monster trucks, zombies, giant insects, robots, movie monsters, huge eyeballs, UFOs, desert landscapes and extremely bright colors! I loved these illustrations and the stream of consciousness trip through this terrible world. Not for everyone, for sure.

Not a ton of substance, but really fun. A panoramic view of total absurdity by the artist who brought you The Bulletproof Coffin (one of the best series I've read in a while). Definitely worth checking out.

Not much actual reading to do here, but this is a hell of a cool book to thumb through. I'd love to see it all end-to-end. Shaky's a man to watch out for.

Not a big fan of obscure, plotless slideshows of basic nothingness, but the art made it just worth it.

may have worked better as a fold-out.
