    1 thought on “Jimbo's Inferno

    1. this book kind of scared me, but the visuals are great, and I can t stop thinking about the river of hot dr pepper what would dr pepper taste like hot I have been procrastinating reading this because I don t want to return it It s a very large book, and I got it from the library, and I have to return it not the normal way which is a space age conveyor belt thing but another way, but I forgot what the other way was.

    2. A mindfuck of the sort where I need to go do my homeworkI love the shattering of hi lo brow castes here, the fusion of grungy zine work right at home in the Fields of the Lord I also feel like I ll probably switch to 5 stars once I have time to revisit influences and explore the other volumes I love what Panter is doing here unoriginal name drops but I sense a aesthetic and formal commonalities with Woodring and Reg Great great stuff, which I m long overdue to be reading.

    3. I live the page layouts and use of panels to show characters as they wander through a much bigger scene It took me awhile to figure out that this is based on Dante s Inferno which I haven t read since high school.

    4. Jimbo s Inferno collects issue 7 of the short run comic Jimbo , published by Bongo comics To experience the magnitude of Jimbo s Purgatory , Inferno is a must read If you have the opportunity to view Jimbo issues 1 6 then you are in for a treat.

    5. It was originally Jimbo 7, continued from Jimbo 1 4 Jimbo 5 features Panter s 70s work and Jimbo 6 features Dal Tokyo I think Fantagraphics should have published along with Jimbo 1 4.
