Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Fifteen years in the making, Remember Here When You Are There! completes the "Springtime" cycle of Beanworld stories, chronicling the season in which the perfect harmony of the Beanworld is interrupted for the first time in memory. Larry Marder's Beanworld is a most peculiar comic book experience. Inspired by equal parts Jack Kirby, Native American Mythology, Marcel Duchamp, and Robert Crumb, Beanworld has delighted readers from grade school to grad school for more than a generation. Now, Marder returns to his sui generis creation with the first in a series of original Beanworld graphic novels! Chock full of characters new and old, this volume sees the Pod'l'pool Cuties learn to fly; Dreamishness ask Beanish to write a love song; trouble with the Hoi-Polloi; the long-anticipated return of Heyoka and the Big Fish to the Beanworld; and all manner of other developments and surprises!

Review:

"After a 15-year hiatus, Marder returns to finish the springtime arc of his acclaimed Beanworld graphic novel series, a deceivingly simple fable — told in cartoony black-and-white drawings — of human culture acted out by a race of magical beans. Artist Beanish finds himself forced to explore the unfamiliar world of music when his muse Dreamish orders him to present her not with a love song but with 'the' love song. At the same time, a determined and somewhat paranoid tribal hero, Mr. Spook, endeavors to feed and defend his fellow beans, despite the loss of his Trusty Fork; the Pod'l'pool Cuties and the Elusive Notworm quietly explore the mystery of the Float Factor; contrary Heyoka struggles to return home for the first time since she Broke Out; and Professor Garbanzo ponders what it all means. Where other fantasy authors are happy to mirror our present or past in their secondary worlds, embellishing their borrowed settings with a patina of imaginary magic and invented legend, Marder's Beanworld is its own highly original realm, with its own natural laws and mythology. Aside from a short glossary and simple map, Marder eschews explicit explanations, trusting his audience to unravel his intensely personal vision from context."
