Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A Gift Comes! is jam-packed with new characters and monumental developments in the evolving Beanworld culture. It kicks off with the birth of the next generation of Beans: the baby Pod'l'pool Cuties. It chronicles the discombobulation of Mr. Spook's fork by greedy Goofy Service Jerks. Meet Mr. Teach'm, who raised Mr. Spook on a cloud. See the crazy breakout origin of Heyoka, Beanworld's upside-down-and-backwards Bean. Read how Professor Garbanzo first discovered the Four Realities and much, much more! The Beanworld is a self-contained, weird fantasy dimension that operates under its own rules and laws, but it also echoes deep truths about our own world at the same time. All the characters, whether they are friends or adversaries, understand that ultimately they depend on each other for survival.

Review:

"Originally published between 1988 and 1993, Marder's adorably mad Tales of Beanworld are collected under the title 'A Gift Comes!' but could have just as easily been called 'Awww!' Marder introduces a new element to his tightly constructed clockwork universe, the aptly named Cuties. Small, round bundles of peapodlike sweetness, the Cuties live in the Pod'l'pool, where they must be constantly fed and watched by the stick-limbed adult Beans. Frequently this entails the world's designated hero, the impetuous Mr. Spook, leading raids on the Hoi-Polloi people to capture the Cutie-sustaining substance Chow. It's an exciting, packed volume, featuring heroic escapades with Mr. Spook, choreographed musical numbers and otherworldly adventures involving the cross-dimensional Goofy Service Jerks (not to be confused with the Goofy Surveillance Jerks). Though Marder's surreal but compact b&w drawings have the anarchic feel of 1970s underground comix, nothing here is random or missing. It's a closed ecosystem, where each individual and element has its place, all laid out in a helpful foreword with map and glossary. An extraordinary world-builder, Marder is also a bright-eyed comic storyteller who doesn't mind sprinkling a little magic and cuteness amid the good citizenship lessons."
