So maybe I shouldn't be surprised that someone with such a bizarro-psychedelic-Aztec visual style, a visual style perhaps most comparable to the densely-patterned outsider symbologies of Adolf Wölfli, would not be especially well-suited to narrative. The couple non-narative, pure-visual sections in the middle of this are great, and two-part final story "The Blood is the Cow" has its (icky, squeamish) moments.

i'm usually into crude, perverse humor, but some of this just didn't take for me. and yet, when it did take, how it took! The Blood of the Cow parts 1 and 2 is sublime grotesquerie, so phenomenally weird--upsetting, nauseating, hilarious.
