"Best First "Big Show": Panter isn't just a legendary underground comic-book artist and the guy who created the sets for Pee-wee's Playhouse; he's also a painter. For his Clementine Gallery retrospective, "Pictures From the Psychedelic Swamp, 1972-2001," Panter covered the walls with recurring characters (like his "post-nuclear punk-rock" dude named Jimbo) and curated a room with the quirky ephemera that's inspired his work (soap wrappers, Japanese candy, wet paint signs). "Show" is probably the wrong word for what was on view here: It was more like walking into Panter's messy, expressionistic, and entirely original brain." --New York Magazine, December 12, 2008

Hardcore fans won't be disappointed with the depth and quality of this set, and for anyone unfamiliar with Panter's work, this is a perfect starting point.
What a pleasure it is to leaf through and study the drawings (from MANY sketchbooks over the course of three decades!) and take in the visual treats that are Gary Panter's paintings!
There are TWO whole volumes filled with Mr. Panter's delicious & sumptuous work presented within; including personal photos dating from his infancy to his college years and into his punk-rock era and beyond...you even get a glimpse at his teenage home studio he labelled: his 'hippie cave'...
I honestly cannot praise this book enough!
Ever since I saw this gigantic coffee table sized tome in the remainder section of a local 'chain store' and decided to pass on it; then regretted it almost immediately and tried to go back to purchase it (it was selling for $24, and was a $99 set of TWO coffee table sized books!) only to find that it had already been purchased! I have been pining away to get my hands on this King-Sized book ever since.
Finally, through Amazon: I was able to procure a pristine (and brand spanking NEW) copy from a seller here for a fraction of even the 'remainder book's' price. I knew I had to have it.
I have not regretted the purchase since.
The packaging is beautiful, covered back to front in eye-popping, psychedelic colored Gary Panter imagery (on the box which holds the two GINORMOUS books) and a little embossed sketch in the middle of the cover of each heavy canvas cover of the two tomes. The whole set is a sturdy and well made piece of art in and of itself.
It has Gary Panter designed end papers within, as well as looking as if it were personally designed by Mr. Panter himself and the binding is amazingly well made and hearty. I don't think it will fall-apart with even the heaviest handling?Read more ›
