    The words dark and disturbing don t even begin to describe this book that could easily be subtitled Twisted Ways For People To Die The nearly wordless comics are rendered in a scratch board technique, though the subject matter bears no resemblance to the puppies and kites I happily etched out in 4th grade art class Stark black and white is perfect for the nightmares contained in the pages of this book Here the characters live in a world that is eternally night time Shadows play across their ugly, contorted faces, as they cause others pain and torment, occasionally meeting up with an unpleasant end themselves There are no happy endings in these vignettes All of them play out like particularly nasty Twilight Zone episodes A man dreams of suicide, again and again A satisfying and poetic fate rises up to meet a white supremecist A suitcase full of money brings ill fortune to all who touch it, and Death painstakingly adds to his unusual collection.The book closes with a two page list of the author artist s inspirations Included among the many are Steve Buscemi, Raymond Chandler, Bettie Page, Fritz Lang, Christopher Walken, AND Pippi Longstocking I don t know about you, but he sounds like my kinda guy.

    A collection of twenty years of short short stories, scratchboard, black and white, wordless, pretty amazing artwork, but I had just read three books that are or contain longer stories, and this one, with , and less focus, had less impact for me I think I would have rated this higher had this been the only book I had read from Ott who was is the lead singer of The Playboys as well as an amazing atmospheric dark, creepy comics artist This collection includes two I had just read in The Dead, including The Millionaire and Washing Day, which are the best things in this collection So these are horror, crime, and as someone else reviewed IT ALWAYS ENDS BADLY, every story I love the epigraph, You have to do something while waiting for death, Hakan Nesser , and this helps you get something about his work that I hadn t captured yet, the humor These are brutal, but in part because of the black and white, not really raw slasher stories, and you slowly realize they are funny, or that horror can also be funny, as Hitchcock and other horror artists know I see he knows and has worked with the graphic artist David B, which might help you get the tone of his work He includes two pages at the end of the book of, not acknowledgements, but what he calls inspirations, from literature, film, comics, music, everything, and this might help you get the tone of his work, too, his intentions There s a love of noir and fantasy and romance for classic cinema that comes through here in the work, not a contemporary feel.

    An excellent collection of short stories from one of my new favorite authors Dark, creative and thought provoking I ve never read anything quite like them.

    Le tipiche atmosfere graffiate dell illustratore elvetico in forma di short shortissime stories.Il tema principale di questa raccolta, come si evince dal titolo, la morte.Qui sono raccolti 19 tra i suoi lavori dal 1985 al 2004.Come succede con le raccolte alcune storie possono piacere ed altre meno, in questo caso diciamo che ci troviamo in una situazione di pareggio.Ott, autore che amo, da il meglio di s nel racconto lungo e secondo me condensare dei concetti in 2, 3 pagine non gli molto congeniale.Consiglio questo titolo solo ai veri fan, per chi invece volesse approcciarsi a quest autore consiglio Cinema Panopticum.

    Un recueil d un auteur que je ne connaissais pas jusque l Le graphisme et le titre ont attir mon oeil et je n ai pas regrett d avoir attrap ce livre Un best of de l auteur, assez copieux, sur presque 20 ans de carri re Mais aucun dialogue ne vient perturber la lecture , l est l ironie Le graphisme est tr s particulier car l auteur suisse travaille la carte gratter Le noir domine naturellement l oeuvre Beaucoup de cynisme, parfois un peu trash On sent l univers rock de l auteur ce qui est loin de me d plaire.Des sc nes de vie ou de mort d ailleurs , mises en sc ne presque cin matographiques Un recueil d vorer et surtout admirer.

    Wunderbare, manchmal makabre, manchmal humorvolle idealerweise beides Kurzgeschichten, ausgef hrt in h chstem Detail auf Schabkarton Comics in einigen hnlichen Formaten, relativ schnell zur z nftigen Pointe, aber trotzdem wird genug Zeit genommen, um ein eindr ckliches Ambiente zu erstellen Mir gef llt das Licht unglaublich, und wie sich der Leser auch an Situationen herantastet Dazu gibt es kleinere Bilder, oder Sammlungen zu Themen Auf jeden Fall sehr viel Unterhaltung pro Seite.

    Very dark Ott has some real issues, but the art is convincing and done well.

    A compilation of his best work If you are into nightmarish worldless graphic novels than this is worth a read Soo good And sooooooo weird Creepy Unsettling Original.

    3.6 Stars Wordless and all about people killing and dying, this book of short tales is dark, creepy, violent, and murderous, but with a sense of humour.
