Ken Dahls „Monsters“ ist ein Comic über Geschlechtskrankheiten (!) und mein erstes schonmal vorbestelltes Comic für 2010. Das Teil ist halb Aufklärungs-Buch, halb Autobiographie (!!) und so krank im wahrsten Sinne des Wortes, dass ich es schon jetzt für ein Must Have halte.
Part fiction and part deranged educational film strip, Monsters focuses both on the physical symptoms and the traumatic emotional damage of an STD that rarely affects two people the same way. Following his acclaimed collection of short comics, Welcome to the Dahlhouse, Ken Dahl cements his status as one of the best cartoonists of his generation with this brutally honest account of disease and self-acceptance.
"Ken Dahl's Monsters is probably the most entertaining educational comic ever. Already a worthwhile read for its lessons on STDs and relationships, Dahl's excellent cartooning and humor make this book required reading for anyone who has had sex, is going to have sex or wants to have sex." -Jeffrey Brown. "Ken Dahl is one of the great unsung talents in American comics." -Jason Lutes.(Last Gasp)
