    Kyle Boelte: IMG Selfies, Memoir, and the World Beyond the Self



    When I was a teenager in Colorado during the late '90s, I liked to climb 14ers — 14,000-foot mountains. I'd often hike with friends, and at... Continue »

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When Tim and his wife inherit his father's museum of curiosities and find therein a taxidermied African warrior ("The Savage" — or so the museum's placard labels him), Tim's quiet suburban life starts spiraling out of control.  In this dark comedy about family, race, and politics, Glenn Eichler and Nick Bertozzi explore what's buried under the surface of middle-class America. 

Review:

"The first graphic novel written by The Colbert Report's Eichler is a light comedy about racism, with a hint of retooled movie proposal about it. It concerns a pair of half-brothers — square family man Tim Johnston and a spaced-out, trepanned loose cannon who calls himself 'Free' — whose inheritance of their father's 'museum of curiosities' includes the preserved, stuffed body of an African man in a loincloth and bone necklace, holding the remnants of a spear. Naturally, they want to get rid of the 'Warrior,' as Tim prefers to call him — but getting rid of human remains turns out not to be as easy as driving them to a museum. Naturally, all kinds of uncomfortable associations about race and history burble up. Naturally, hijinks ensue. Bertozzi's artwork — a slightly cruder, much less detailed variation on the look of his graphic novel The Salon — unobtrusively whisks the story along; there's also a nuttier, bolder style for a series of dream sequences in which the 'Warrior' becomes the focal point for all of Tim's anxieties. Even when the plot seems a little too formulaic (will everyone learn something by the end?), Eichler's crisp, snappy dialogue keeps it percolating. (Sept.)"
