Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Like a Velvet Glove... collects all 10 chapters of the serialized story Eightball. As Clay Loudermilk attempts to unravel the mysteries behind a snuff film, he finds himself involved with an increasingly bizarre cast of characters, including a pair of sadistic cops who carve a strange symbol into the heel of Clay's foot; a horny over-the-hill suburban woman whose sexual encounter with a mysterious water creature produced a grotesquely misshapen, but no less horny, mutant daughter; a dog with no orifices whatsoever (it has to be fed by injection); two ominous victims of extremely bad hair implants; a charismatic Manson-like cult leader who plans to kidnap a famous advice columnist and many more! This edition has a brand new cover, new title and end pages--plus: Clowes being the perfectionist that he is, there are tweaked and re-drawn panels that really make this a transcendent piece of storytelling art!

 

Synopsis:

From , this terrifying and fascinating journey into madness makes Twin Peaks look like Teletubbies.

Synopsis:

Beyond surreal and bordering on the indescribable, Velvet Glove is a perfectly-executed serial of the strange and macabre, held together with a rigorous dream-logic only Clowes could conjure. Couched within a detective genre structure and rich with recurring motifs and repeated imagery, the plot follows Clay Loudermilk as he searches for a former lover.
