About this title

Synopsis:

  • Earth has unfolded. Reality has stretched out into its more true and more terrible shape. Now, an insane cowgirl stalks the prairie in search of her missing brother... while a heartbroken lover confronts the creature masquerading as his stolen house. A refugee from a lost dimension ponders the impossible existence of cheese, and there's just another guy with a whole planet for a head.
  • The Last Sane Cowboy & Other Stories collects Daniel Merlin Goodbrey's Isotope Award-winning short story alongside five other surreal tales of life... and death on the Unfolded Earth.

From Booklist:

Fumetti, photographed rather than drawn comics, reach a giddy apotheosis in Goodbrey's intransigently whimsical pieces. His two-plane visual style is obtuse enough, consisting of foregrounds of action in stark black-and-white and uniformly light-gray-and-white backgrounds. Foregrounds and backgrounds alike are obviously photographs, printed so high contrast that their subjects are all shadows and outlines. Then there are the stories. In "I Bleed Scorpions," Dean explains to his m-f drinking companions (the guy's labeled Alex and has a dog's head--in homage to Mark Kalesniko's Alex, 2006; see Top 10 Graphic Novels, p.41) that when he bleeds, his blood turns into scorpions. He pricks a finger, and sure enough. In the title piece, a gal gunslinger goes to Insanity ("Population: You Too!") to get her brother, who's a goldfish; en route she encounters talking horses and the titular male. "The Girl Who Talked" has three speakers, one a guy, shown TV talking-heads style, revealing their personal weirdnesses. Unflinchingly deadpan, this stuff is either highly hilarious or obnoxiously odd. You decide which. Ray Olson
