Review

I’ve loved Joost Swarte’s perfect cartoons, drawings and designs for decades and it’s nothing short of ridiculous that a comprehensive edition of this brilliant artist’s work has never been available in America until now. Swarte is considered a national treasure in his native Holland, and if you open this book, you’ll understand why. (Chris Ware)

I pre-ordered this ages ago, and was pleasantly surprised when it showed up on my porch this morning. The book is a bit smaller than I'd hoped, but the content more than makes up for it. Not necessarily comprehensive, it serves to showcase some of Swarte's best work, spanning the 70s to the 00s. If you're a fan of Swarte, Herge, or other claire ligne work, don't hesitate.

An amazing book filled with stunning artwork and intriguing story lines. I find myself continually picking this book up to read through again and to admire the immaculate and imaginative art.
An excellent production all round. I can't recommend this one highly enough.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Swarte is far more than an imitator of Herge's "clear line" school-- his incisive, biting, satiric, at times whimsical work transcends simplistic categorization. Reminiscent of Gluyas Williams and Seymour Chwast and (sometimes) Tomi Ungerer, Swarte is in a class by himself. This welcome collection puts together, at a surprisingly low price, dozens of his strips in monotone and color. Many feature Jopo de Pojo, his protagonist of choice. In a word, brilliant. Chris Ware's intro is a plus.

Highly recommended. Not for kiddies-- some adult material here
