Almost Completely Baxter
New and Selected BlurtingsBook - 2016
"Over four decades and a multitude of books, "Colonel" Glen Baxter has built a world and a language all his own--slightly familiar, decidedly abnormal, irresistibly funny. Have you felt the terror of a failed Szechuan dinner? Have you seen what happens at precisely 6:15? Do you know where the beards are stored? Either way, this is the book for you. Celebrated by everyone from John Cleese to Ed Ruscha, Baxter's drawings are a delicious stew of pulp adventures, highbrow high jinks, and outright absurdity: brave men tremble before moussaka, schoolgirls hoard hashish, and the world's fruits are in constant peril. Wimples abound. This new selection brings together highlights from the full sweep of his long career and is sure to enchant both confirmed Baxterians and those who are in dire need of an introduction"--
