'Poochytown' - Jim Woodring - (100 pagina's, Engelstalig, hardcover, uitgeverij Fantagraphics Books)
When Pupshaw and Pushpaw depart for the orgiastic delights of Poochytown, the forlorn Frank is thrown by a twist of fate into an unlikely friendship, propelling him down a long road of escapades and trials that ends in one of the most shocking acts ever depicted in the Frank canon. Poochytown takes readers to the distant crumbling edge of the Unifactor, where the landscape's mind is either unfettered or unhinged, depending on your particular taste for mischief. What occurs there beggars description, so we will not even attempt it, but rest assured it is a dark-ride-of-the-soul as only the Frank stories can deliver.
"Brilliant…what a trip…I dig this…a lot, man…Jim really gives it to us." — Jeff Bridges
