This freakish lil' creature bites off Osama Bin Laden's nose, has a court award custody to his new mom Martha Stewart, hangs with a famous person who has plastic surgery and ends up with Tom Cruise's face, becomes President of these here United States and Lindsay Lohan is his Vice-President, discovers that Beyonce is a semi-Bigfoot and (whew!) that is only just the begining of this insanity that is mixed together with crazed-humor that you will not find lurking in Garfield" anytime soon!
I've been enjoying Peter Bagge's work for many a moon now but, I have never seen anything like this comic...This stuff is NUTZ! Bat Boy, is really hilarious to read, and don't try to predict just what is gonna happen next as it's going to be something you didn't expect to see in the first place. Peter Bagge, is the real-deal and has created a world of images that flow right from his brain down to his pen as he is behind this completly original and brilliant comic.
You haven't seen anything like this since you took the brown acid at Woodstock in 1969.
This is a great lil' book.
Four & 1/2 Stars!!!
Now that I've sprained my arm patting myself on the back, let me just say that, in case you weren't already aware of it, Peter Bagge is of course a huge talent and one of the greatest artists in comics working today. Much of his work (Other Lives, for instance), is very sharp, nuanced, character-driven and well-observed. The Bat Boy strips lean in a much more deliberately absurd, antic comic angle. It may not be his deepest, most meaningful work, but it sure is entertaining. Buy it, damn you!
