Italian artist Laurina Paperina's Braindead is a pop-culture feat of
comedy and commentary. In the 80 colorful drawings included here,
Paperina applies her free-wheeling brand of cultural satire to a wide
range of iconic characters. Who else could mix Homer Simpson
(whose brain is depicted as a donut with sprinkles), Jackson Pollock and
the Pope in one sharply observed book? Yes, there's plenty of
Technicolor brain tissue, but instead of leaving the viewer feeling
repulsed, Paperina uses her stylized graphic motifs to hit on the
essence of each character - what makes them tick - and as a result, the
surprising clumps of brain become laugh-aloud funny.
