AMPHIGOREY AGAIN-Resenha de HQ em inglês





Review:

Amphigorey Again is a wonderful addition to the now
classic Amphigorey Series (the others being Amphigorey,
Amphigorey Too and Amphigorey Also).
Said that this fourth volume is by far the weakest,
but that's not to say it's bad (remember we're not
talking about hacks) : Gorey in his less inspired moments
is still worth buying.
There are a number of very short pieces here as well as some
wonderful ilustrations but the most interesting pieces
are the lenghty ones, even though some of them seems
like an incomplete draft.
Amphigorey Again is not the best introduction  for those
who wants to immerse for the first time in Gorey's
demented genius but if you are a Gorey addict this volume
is ABSOLUTELY INDISPENSABLE.
