There are two sides to every coin, every story, and every person. No matter how hard you try to hide that second face away, you can never get rid of it. That's what one man is about to learn when his under-developed feminine side materializes into a very real, bubble gum-chewing bimbo and turns his world upside down! Sam Kieth's hauntingly intimate five-issue mini-series, ...more

My Inner Bimbo is the story of Lo. Lo is married to a woman 17 years older than him and has a very odd relationship with his overly-developed feminie side, his inner bimbo, a pink clad blonde named Bunny. As you can tell, this is another of Sam Kieth's psychological comics.

The Mysterious Trout, a minor background charactr in Ojo, plays a more prominent role in this story. Lo has a weird friendship with a lesbian named Dana online, both of whom have seen the Mysterious Trout. Dana looks a look li

I enjoyed this book. But I'm very, very aware that it's not going to be the sort of thing that everyone enjoys.

It's introspective, metaphysical, cryptic at times if not downright opaque, and (let's be honest here) more than slightly crazy at times.

But that's why I love Sam Keith's stuff. If you're into this sort of thing, you'll love it. If not, you'll probably hate it.

How's that for a useless review?

As I have come to expect from Mr. Kieth, this graphic novel was nothing short of inspiring. It reaches deep and makes even the most particular of events seem applicable and familiar. As was the case of The Maxx as well, I left this book with some tears and a widened understanding and concept of what it is to exist. It may sound odd saying this of a graphic novel, but no, Sam Kieth's work is important and reaches to that level every time. It moves the reader, it inspires the reader, and this was ...more

swoon; smart, confusing, layered, insightful, relevant, painful. a must read for sam kieth fans, smart people, art history types, and tortured neurotics.
Once again Sam Keith provides a beautifully disjointed, psychologically deep character study as well as a deeply sincere story of self discovery. This book feels (to me) more like The Maxx than any of his other works I've read. However, despite similarities to The Maxx, My Inner Bimbo seems to come from a more mature place and not only because the main character is a bit long in the tooth. There seems to be greater complexity in the symbolism and a deeper sense of neurosis, qualities already pre ...more

Just. Fricking. Amazing.

So good and insightful that I literally couldn't read it at points.
Sam Kieth weaves together another surreal but truthful tale of self doubt and inner dialogue. Lo and Betsy are struggling to keep their marriage together, when out of the pink ether comes the Bimbo, who helps Lo confront his demons and become a better man. But first he must defeat the Giant Female Disapproval Sea Monster. If you're like "huh?" Don't worry. Just enjoy the ride through Kieth's "Trout-a-verse."

P.S., "My Inner Bimbo" is a sister piece to Kieth's "Ojo" series.

Unlike Anything I've Ever Read

Let me get the negative out of the way: The art in this book is a bit sloppy at times, even with the help of Sam Keith's pinch hitters. But I've never read a story like this. The way that the threads of the imaginary and the emotional weave together as the main character explores himself is intense and extremely thoughtful. This book demands the reader's focus, and the payoff is worth it.

Definitely a unique reading experience when it comes to comics. Unfortunately, the main character is too difficult for any reader to connect with. He seems like a well fleshed out personality, but has such strange issues it's difficult to understand his motivations. The art is nice, but not well suited to black and white. In full color, this would have been a much better reading experience.
Deeply flawed, wherein the flaws contributed to a larger transcendent whole. Spectacular art. Sexiness. Expansive mode of being. "Kieth, Kieth, Kieth!" my inner seal skin screams in confused adoration.
Very very dense and wordy. Often more than it has to be. Not Alan Moore dense, but just too introspective. Still and interesting and original story, and Sam's artwork has never been better... or brushier.

Kieth first came to prominence in 1984 as the inker of Matt Wagner's Mage, his brushwork adding fluidity and texture to the broad strokes of Wagner's early work at Comico Comics. In 1989, he drew the first five issues of writer Neil Gaiman's celebrated series The Sandman, but felt his style was unsuited to the book (specifically saying that he "felt like Jimi Hendrix in The Beatles") and left, han ...more
