Super F*ckers #4
by James Kochalka
Top Shelf Productions

Review by Tom Good

In my review of Super F*ckers #2, I said that it made Beavis and Butt-head look like Shakespeare. I'm not sure where to go after that analogy except to say that Volume 4 is just like Volume 2, only with more unbearably stupid urination scenes. At least Kochalka's other work makes it clear that this book is stupid on purpose, and that he is capable of much more worthwhile creations like American Elf. [more]

American Elf, Book Two
by James Kochalka
Top Shelf Productions

Review by Tom Good

James Kochalka is back with more American Elf, his daily diary in the form of a comic strip. Book Two collects two years of entries, from January 2004 to December 2005. Unlike the first book which was black and white, this one is all in color. So let me get the cranky, picky part of this review out at the beginning: I miss the monochrome version. The simplicity of Kochalka's style makes American Elf fun, so color does not really add much. And the coloring varies from one day's strip to the next. In a book arranged with four strips per page in chronological order, compositions with inconsistent flesh tones and clashing colors appear right next to each other. In the original format of one strip per day, this would not matter, but when collected together, I found it distracting. Aside from that, though, I did enjoy this book just as much as the first one.
