Europe's master of modern wordless horror returns with his third book. With T. Ott's Tales of Error, Ott directs a nod toward the classic horror formulas of EC Comics (Tales from the Crypt, Shock SuspenStories, Weird Science) and Rod Serling's Twilight Zone, with a decidedly contemporary spin. This collection contains six beautifully rendered and horrific stories. "Honeymo ...more

Look, cool/creepy scratchboard comic strips about subjects waaaaay darker than most Gorey! Oh, and they're gory, too! <---Ya see what I did there?

I have almost always loved a super-high-contrast graphic style* when one is dealing with the numerous potential ways to murder your husband, or the inevitable downsides to inheriting money, joining the military, or getting a facelift. I'm not big on comics in general because I lack the patience for cartoons and anime (and musicals, since we're on t
Maybe I went about this all backwards. I read Ott's phenomenal Cinema Panopticum first, then his lesser, but still worthy Dead End, and, finally, Tales of Error. To be fair, this is Ott's first graphic novel, and I'm reading it last of the three graphic novels of his that I've read. So this backward chronological crawl has been a disappointment. It's easy to see Ott's progression as a storyteller over time. I suppose I was operating under the mistaken notion that an author's/artist's first work ...more
Ada 6 kisah pendek dalam buku ini : Honeymoon, The Hero, Clean Up!, A Wrinkled Tragedy, Headbanger dan 10 Ways to Kill Your Husband. Thomas Ott begitu piawai mengolah 6 kisah dalam 46 halaman.

Kisah favorit saya adalah Honeymoon. Bila diterjemahkan secara kasar seperti demikian :

أول عمل مصور أقرأه على الإطلاق للسويسري توماس أوت يملك أفكار مخيفة شديدة الخصوصية لا يسردها إلا بالاعتماد على الصورة بالغة الكابوسية التي يخلقها ويؤكد عليها في كل قصة ضمن ثنايا هذا الكتاب، ويملك صوت خاص شجعني حتمًا لقراءة بقية أعماله.

Esta obra consiste en un conjunto de historias de horror muy breves, en la cual lo más especial es el arte. Los dibujos no son a color y tienen un estilo expresionista fantástico que junto al horror físico de las historias deja una impresión muy agradable para los amantes del género. Los dibujos son tan buenos que de hecho casi no hay texto en las historias, ya que los trazos expresan perfectamente las situaciones y emociones de los personajes. Cada página es una obra de arte. En particular me e ...more
