Brian Evenson delves deeply into the pages of Chester Brown’s (Louis Riel, Paying for It) seminal comic-book Yummy Fur, from its beginnings as a mini comic to its afterlife in the graphic novels it spawned. Brian's comics archaeology excavates the discarded fragments of Brown's masterpiece Ed The Happy Clown, examines the never re-printed adaptions of the Gospels, considers the juxtaposition of religion and absurdism, and meditates on the pleasures of reading serialized pamphlet comic books. The book also features a new interview with Chester Brown, shining a new spotlight on this important work.

Brian Evenson is the author of eleven prize-winning books of fiction, including The Open Curtain, Last Days, Windeye, and Immobility. His work has been translated into over a dozen languages. He lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island, where he teaches at Brown University.

Review:

In this illuminating look at Chester Brown’s Ed the Happy Clown, Brian Evenson uses an array of critical approaches to tell a compelling story about Brown, not only as a cartoonist and intellectual, but as an obsessive reviser of his own work. Evenson reveals the dramatic effects that Brown’s revisions, even minor changes to a drawing or a panel’s placement, have on his comics. With Ed vs. Yummy Fur, Brown’s work finally gets the sustained attention it deserves.” Ken Parille, editor of The Daniel Clowes Reader
