Ville Verkkapuro
A simple comic, yet something so much more. Absurd, dirty, raunchy, over-the-top funny... A pure piece of art.
Something about this is so dreamy and makes me feel so good. A world of its own with its own rules... reminds me of Heavy Metal.

Funny and absurd. I like the clean style mixed with the abundance of horrific events. A cocktail true and tried and that works well

This has to be one of the strangest comics ever produced. It's got the look of a traditional French-Belgian comic, with its clear lines and ever smiling, happy-go-lucky protagonist. He's even got a lock of hair protruding from his forehead, á la Tintin. But the content is far from traditional. Described as pop-art or even dadaist, these one pagers are surreal and often very provocative, making fun of such "lightweight" themes as death, nazism, cancer, sexuality and so on.
