Descriptions du produit

From her first comics published in the Evergeen State College school paper to her influential weekly comic strip, "Ernie Pook's Comeek"; from her bestselling creative how-to memoir comic books, "What It Is "and "Picture This," to her novels, graphic memoirs, plays, and awards in between, Lynda Barry has been part of the North American alternative comics scene for thirty years. Fans around the world rejoiced at D+Q's announcement of "Blabber Blabber Blabber: Volume 1 of" "Everything," which collects all of the seminal "Ernie Pook's Comeek," some of which has been out of print for decades, and includes her earliest books, such as "Girls and Boys "and "Big Ideas," and features an introduction penned by Barry, complete with photographs. Reflective of the early 1980s before the appearance of Barry's well-known characters Marlys and Arna, the comics in ""Blabber Blabber Blabber""cover the more adult subjects of bad love, bad perms, being single, Prince, and miserable break-ups--resulting in one of the most oft-quoted Barry sayings: "Love is an exploding cigar which we all willingly smoke." Though Barry's early drawing style is most often described as "scratchy," her affinity for large swaths of text and narration; her fondness for exclamation marks, angular shapes, and cursive penmanship; and her uncanny ability to zero in on the very essence of life all within a few panels is as present as ever in this collection.

"Test Your Sense Of Humor! Which One Is Funny? 1. Hula Chicken; 2. Glass Of Milk." 22 février 2012
Par Robert I. Hedges - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
"Blabber Blabber Blabber Blabber: Volume One of Everything" is a simply stunning book from one of America's most brilliantly unique and visually distinctive alternative comic artists. This book chronicles Barry's difficult and transformative early years struggling with problems at home and finding a release in comics. Long before Marlys, there were "Two Sisters," "Girls and Boys," and "Ernie Pook's Comeek" plus much, much more.

I reveled in Lynda's early work, and found her one-off comics to be among my favorites. I was particularly entertained by the skewering of the then-popular "you might be an artist" advertisements on p. 14 ("You may have hidden artistic talent!") and especially the humor test I chose for my title (P. 15.) Lynda's peculiar style, her constantly changing use of fonts and spellings, and dabbling with surrealism (see especially the dueling cacti on p. 17) make for a great read. I've always thought of Lynda as a kindred spirit, and anyone from any age can find something to delight in here.

This book really takes me back in time, and I couldn't have enjoyed it more. Lynda, sincere thanks to you! Now can you get the next collection out please? I can't wait!

a little slice of everything... 6 décembre 2011
Par meeah - Publié sur
Format: Relié
Well it all started when I made a pizza rustica for my boyfriend. It's one of those "everything but the kitchen sink" Italian dishes. Mainly, it requires a lot of chopping and dicing of several pounds of various pork products--salami, ham, sausage, etc.--rolling out of doughs, and slicing of many cheeses...but, alas, if you're a vegetarian like me, it doesn't involve a lot of eating. So when we took a trip down to the comic book shop the next day, as a way of saying "thanks," which he hardly needed to do since he'd already said "thanks" and it was my pleasure anyway, especially after he told me it was the best pizza rustica he ever ate, he bought me a copy of this book--something I never would have done for myself, since I would have waited until it came out in paperback, and even then, kept waiting until someone had a used and bloodstained copy to sell for $1.38-- and presented it to me while I was wandering around glancing over the store's offerings of mini-comics.

What a fantastic boyfriend...and what a fantastic book!

*Everything Volume 1* has a little of everything about Lynda Barry that I love. Even the introduction is a special treat "written" as it is in Barry's distinctive and current collage style.

This book collects some of Barry's earlier pieces and comic series. Repetition of theme and even treatment in such a collection is probably inevitable, but even where repetition may inevitably occur in the writing there is so much to look at in Barry's graphic presentation that the work never grows tiresome or stale. There is an irrepressible vibrancy to Barry's line and a "primitive" decorative beauty to her work that makes it endlessly pleasurable to look at.

Don't get me wrong, though. Barry's writing is sharp and funny and at it's best in this collection can carry you along even without the pictures! She has something insightful to say in virtually every panel. She is smart, funny, biting, cynical, tender, and sweet...often all at the same time. Spending time with a book of Lynda Barry comics is like spending time with a good friend and you feel like a better and happier person for it.

I loved this book!

I cant wait for volume two. If I don't want to wait a hundred years for a used, yellowed, bloodstained paperback copy, I better plan on making another pizza rustica!

The Barry Retrospective: Volume 1 of 10. An American Source Book 19 novembre 2011
Par David R. Anderson - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
Lynda Barry had a troubled youth: her parents divorced when she was twelve; she did drugs, found herself at loose ends. Then at sixteen, she got her act together. The intervening hard knocks inform her work and provide perspective and bite. One can imagine her as a seventeen year-old in a Trailways Bus Depot sizing up the other passengers and nailing them with her acerbic drawings. She hits dead center nearly every time. Following her auspicious start on her college newspaper, Barry became one of the leading comic strip artists in what we have come to call the alternative comics scene.

The term is established, but it is not a good fit for her work. The term comes from the fact that her strips were published in the newsweeklies that sprung up around the country as alternatives to the mainline consumer newspapers, the papers that carried Donald Duck, Dick Tracey and Little Orphan Annie. In truth, those comic strips, which are all highly fanciful in their way, portrayed worlds that were far less real than the one Lynda Barry conjured up week after week.

She dealt with life as it unfolds for those for whom life makes no sense, often from the view point of young girls as she did in her "Two Sisters" strip which is included in this volume. These are characters who would change place with Annie in a Seattle second.

Lynda Barry stepped away from drawing her comic strips in 2008 as the alternative newsweekly market shrank to the vanishing point. Now she spends a good deal of her time teaching others how to do what she did, how to write, to draw, to tell their stories. She is very good at it. Her workshops are filled with men and women, old and young and in between, who swear by her.

"Blabber" is the cornerstone of a publishing venture which will, when it is finished nine volumes from now, provide a comprehensive retrospective of Barry's work. What a gift. Future historians who attempt to write a social history of the U.S. in the late 20th, and early 21st Centuries without consulting this archive will do so at their peril. For a complete description of the contents of Volume 1, read the first two five star reviews of the book, those by "rudkr" and Jeddy 3. They are both knowledgeable about her her early comics.

End note. Lynda Barry made a fan of me when I came across a copy of her 1994 coloring book, "Naked Ladies Naked Ladies Naked Ladies Naked Ladies." It contains 56 unique images which, together, comprise a deck of cards with four jokers. It convinced me that Barry intended to show her readers what it's really like out there. For more details check out the title on Amazon. There are still a couple of used copies for sale.

the first in a series of Everything in the World drawn by Dr. Barry 13 novembre 2011
Par rndkr - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
The first in a series of way-highly anticipated volumes that will collect Lynda Barry's entire comics oeuvre, Blabber Blabber Blabber starts at the very beginning (well, Duh), with Barry's unique, sometimes eccentric, often enthralling use of language already in evidence. Her funkily expressionistic, often raw drawings display a seemingly tossed-off skill and employ far more formalistic techniques and experiments than I'd remembered from back in the mid-80's when I used to read and reread her first book, Girls and Boys (collected here in its entirety) over and over. Very cool also to have a look at the full-year run of her never-collected-before comic strip "Two Sisters" from an early 80's paper in Seattle - it's really interesting work, often quite funny, with a wonderfully surreal bent. Barry's introduction and notes throughout tie these, her earliest comics, in with the work she is doing today, not only placing it all in context but demonstrating the trajectory of an artist's career - that in the end it is all of a piece. D&Q did a wonderful job producing this handsome keepsake volume. I eagerly await the next couple in the series, especially as my copies of her great 2nd and 3rd collections, Big Ideas & Everything in the World, are falling apart.

Ann O'neal Garcia loves Lynda Barry 31 décembre 2012
Par onealski - Publié sur
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I saw this enormously talented, bubbly author in person when she gave a speech at a Portland book fest. My daughter took her course for $300 and said it was worth at least $3,000. After hearing Lynda speak, I knew what she meant. Her cartoons are wickedly funny probably because they are so universally true. Who hasn't had a guy dump you, who hasn't had a broken heart, who hasn't had a boring day--she manages to make anything humorous. Her drawings are loose. She's loose and I don't mean that in a bad way. She is perfectly herself, worth listening to, worth reading, blabber blabber blabber
do you get the picture? I love Lynda Barry. My daughter carolyn says that she picks out her friends with a Lynda Barry test. If they don't like Lynda Barry, they are not the people for her. Not a bad idea, Carolyn.
