Ng places It s also really beautifully drawn in Rickheit s strong line with utterly creative backgrounds and objects appearing throughout full marks as always on the skilful artwork The book also ives the reader the impression of a sort of coherent coming of age story I was interested in seeing how these two boys lives ended up in such a bad place and Rickheit doesn t Inverloch Volume 4 go completely overboard on the obscurantist storytelling but heoes
pretty far regardless As for the meaning who knows Maybe we far regardless As for the meaning who knows Maybe we viewing the story from the perspective of Edmund or William two troubled kids one of whom is wearing The Good and Beautiful God goggles uite a bit and we shouldn t take what we see as literal but metaphorical Maybe Rickheit identifies with the boys misunderstood art Is it an exploration of a mind Maybe Rickheit justets a kick out of people trying to figure out his nonsense All I know is I really liked it The Suirrel Machine is dark and weird it s barmy but in a uasi intelligible and yes enjoyable way and is full of striking imagery You re in the hands of an artist who fully understands the language of comics and who can keep the reader invested in his madcap story even if they
don t know what s oing on most of the time and that uality in itself t know what s oing on most of the time and that uality in itself how talented this uy is Still I et the impression that if he wanted to Rickheit could easily take the mundane approach and tell a standard narrative I have no idea what any of it meant which inevitably ends up making me feel a bit unsatisfied but it was a really ood abstract comic Clearly this dude needs to be Scott Snyder s successor on Batman. Ypto seeker; The virgin caress of unconsummated apocalypse; The unspeakable thing that you always knew It’s also the longest and most ambitious raphic novel by legendary obscurantist cartoonist Hans Rickheit 200 pages of exuisitely rendered pictorial narrative Meticulous strange and hauntingly beautiful this enigmatic work will ensure the inuisitive reader a spleenful of cerebral serenity that will take exposure to vast uantities of mediocrity to dispel 192 bw illustrations. Ructure is discovered beneath their house Like Un Chien Andalou and Eraserhead yer fucked if you think a coherent story or a set interpretation can be divined from what abstractions are presented before you but o ahead and whip out the closest copy of Freud you ot on hand and start psychoanalyzing What I liked most was Rickheit s use of steampunk aesthetics as a means of crafting disturbing imagery as opposed to just an excuse for having wear top hats and engineer boots while riding around in zeppelins The Suirrel Machine is certainly a uniue approach to sludging through
The Set In subc in steampunk ish 19th century New England two brothers Edmund and William create musical instruments from scrap and animal carcasses which are unsurprisingly Every Boys Dream greeted with horror by the townsfolk They also fall in love androw up and apart It s like life and junk Yep it s time once again to dip into the unimaginative dull mind of Hans Rickheit who can t help but tell the most straightforward stories ever conceived Oh wait I mean the opposite That said The Suirrel Machine is probably the most accessible of Rickheit s books which really isn t say much considering how utterly batshit insane his comics are There s the usual surrealist horror and nightmarish imagery There s a musical organ made up of pig s heads disgusting skin rowths are eaten as food machinery and flesh are meshed together in unholy ways Some of the dialogue is utterly incongruous eg Vessel es nuxtual is repeated throughout and there are a lot of uncomfortable sex scenes set in some really disturbi. Lt from strange technologies and scavenged animal carcasses Driven to seek a concealment for their aberrant activities they make a startling discovery Perhaps they will divine the mystery of the suirrel machine What is The Suirrel Machine An immutably strange and haunting narrative that transcends known logics and presumptive dream barriers; A distillation of subconscious beauty and inspired madness; A dangerous object for the incautious; A revelation for the undernourished cr. It would be really nice if considering that I introduced him to the wide wonderful world of seuential art that Zack wasn t the one that suggested all of my favorite raphic novels of the last two years This was the most disconcerting bizarre and wonderful raphic novel I ve read since The Aviary And like The Aviary it was eually as irreverent nonsensical and almost impossible to fully deconstruct The Suirrel
