If 'n Oof


Brian Chippendale - 2010
    This newest volume is a departure from his last work, Maggots, and from his first book, Ninja, which elicited the following assessment of the artist's style by Salon.com's Douglas Wolk: "Chippendale's howling hyperspeed attack on every page with his pen is the kind of manifestation of pure style that has more to do with the contemporary visual art scene than with traditional comics and their ideals of clarity and representation." If and Oof are a Laurel and Hardy-esque duo who suffer a series of misadventures amidst Chippendale's frenetic landscapes on their simple quest to just survive, eat, pay rent and avoid confrontation. Comedy and horror ensue in this fast-paced trip through Chippendale's unconscious. The artist's most accessible work to date, If 'n Oof is replete with the frenzied line work and concise, witty dialogue for which he has become known. This first release of all new material since 2005 is a must for Lightning Bolt fans and graphic-novel aficionados, and proves more than approachable to those new to Chippendale's oeuvre.
