Chrz by Stefan J.M. Van Dither. $22. 60 pages. Full color. Published by Bries
This is a book I've long wanted to see as a reader, so I'm very glad to be able to offer it to Domino customers. Silent comic, a true puzzle, but not cold. I see Hankiewicz, McGuire and Ware here, but the tone is more Applebroog. Strong stuff. Good description from the publisher:
A man and a woman have a fight. A young woman reads a comic book. A fly on the wall registrates it all through her multifaceted eyes.
Van Dinther experiments with the formal and narrative conventions of the comic and leaves the genre behind in a surprising piece of craftsmanship. CHRZ is as enigmatic as its title.
