9781603090636: The Bojeffries Saga

Jobremus Bojeffries is like any other father trying to maintain order in his oversized family. Never mind that family contains a werewolf, a vampire, a grandpa in the last stages of organic matter, and a baby that puts off enough thermonuclear energy to power England and Wales...
All right, they're no ordinary family. And this is no ordinary book, with stories spanning decades, a whole chapter written as light opera, a Christmas episode, and an all-new, 24-page comic bringing the Bojeffries up to the present day. On every page, the wry and anarchic creativity of the creators shines through: Alan Moore's affectionate and penetrating grasp of human nature (and British culture) creates a kind of desperate poignancy in the characters, brought to memorable life by Steve Parkhouse's deft and articulate line work. It's all there, untutored, unpolished, ramshackle, and always on the edge of collapse. Very much like Britain itself.

About the Author:

Alan Moore is widely regarded as the best and most influential writer in the history of comics. His seminal works include Miracleman and Watchmen, for which he won the coveted Hugo Award. Never one to limit himself in form or content, Moore has also published novels, Voice of the Fire and Jerusalem, and an epic poem, The Mirror of Love. Four of his ground-breaking graphic novels—From HellWatchmenV for Vendetta, and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen—have been adapted to the silver screen. Moore currently resides in Northampton, England.

From Booklist:

While Moore was first making a name for himself in British comics in the early 1980s with V for Vendetta and Miracleman (and before he set the comics world on its ear with From Hell and Watchmen), he also created this humorous strip about a monstrously eccentric family living in a council house in Northampton. Father Jobremus strives to muddle through, contending with his dullard son, Reth, and brutishly clueless daughter, Ginda; one uncle who is a werewolf and another who’s a vegetarian vampire; a thermonuclear baby in the basement; and a grandfather who’s a giant Cthuloid blob. It’s a bit as though The Munsters had been written and performed by Monty Python, with the same Briticisms that are both fascinating and possibly impenetrable to an American audience. Parkhouse’s tart artwork perfectly captures the mordantly humorous tone of Moore’s vision. A final, brand-new story brings the Bojeffries from the Thatcher era into the present day, where the family, scattered after their house was demolished, is reunited on the set of Big Brother. --Gordon Flagg
