I'm not even sure of I liked this book, but it was fucking weird, gruesome, and disgustingly funny. Drunken aborted foetuses, carnivorous money, microwaved head, and tremendous amounts of gratuitous violence. The artwork is supremely ugly, which is fitting for the subject matter.

Wild story, the kind I would expect from Andersson.

My copy of the book, a paperback, is old and while reading it would tend to crack around spine. Is that why I'm giving this only three stars? That doesn't sound fair...

To celebrate a weekend that was generally quite un-pleasurable, today I finished 'The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid', which I had picked up at the airport (I know). It did do nothing much to humour me.
Really, I give Bryson that his father was a very good sports writer, even the short paragraphs of his work that the book features show that (I keep repeating to myself 'the lordly Yankees') , but Bryson himself? 'Laugh-out-loud'? Not that I would have one paragraph wh

I'm a regular reader of alternative and experimental comics, and I put Pixy on the very top tier of alternative classics. The humor is razor sharp and it is as twistedly dark as anything out there. This book is wholly irreverent and insensitive, yet not necessarily to unsettle anyone specifically. Just keep in mind that this came out around 1990, so let's just say that Andersson wasn't concerned with whether the PC sensitivity police won his approval. Here is an example...

This is my all time favorite freaky graphic novel ever. It's so refreshing to see abortion treated like any other topic - up for twisted grabs! Here, all the little abortions have massive guns and binge of candy and sacrifice TVs to Ikea. I hope that's what my teenage abortion is doing - blasting flame throwers and stuffing its face with chocolate! Rock on!
Yeah, of course there is a lot of weird stuff going on as a story. I think the cartoonist is Swedish so imagine a kinda modern day fun house

Impressively bleak landscape filled with drunk fetuses, bleeding money, and burning cities -- all played for belly laffs. A nice companion to Mark Beyer's "Amy and Jordan" strips.
