    If you ve never been all that charmed by the idiosyncrasies of Julie Doucet s storytelling, you re likely to be thoroughly uninterested or repulsed by Doucet s fellow pioneer of the creatively thriving Quebecois underground comix scene Henriette Valium His nom de punk is just one of the ways that Valium has sought to create his identity as the Pope of Quebec s hardcore punk rock scene, and the artist who would reinvent Hippie underground comix as Punk Rock underground comix Images from Ab Bedex Compilato , which collects stories from 3 decades of Valium s oeuvre Doucet s engagingly flawed English, artistic brilliance, and gift for effortlessly fascinating, undeniably authentic autobiography was made manifest by My New York Diary her painfully hilarious fantasies in My Most Secret Desire demonstrate her imagination, fearless self exposure, and originality Henriette Valium is like Doucet s evil male twin, but without the charm, the storytelling gifts, or the clear delineation between fantasy and reality But as an artist, Valium is among the best in the world, with a style that came from somewhere a few parsecs into the Horsehead Nebula Art from Palace of Champions Palace of Champions like Ab Bedex Compilato , the definitive Valium compilation published a few years ago by L Association is a collection of astoundingly complex illustrations in comic form Conundrum Press did a great job on this slim, very over sized hardcover His broken English is about as broke as English gets, but the episodes themselves are nothing compared to the maniacally intricate pages of jaw dropping, slightly nauseating artistic genius on display His only true peers beside Julie Doucet are the artists who made RAW the avant garde sequential art institution it became Gary Panter, Kaz, Mark Beyer, Kim Deitch and Charles Burns though French auteurs like Stephane Blanquet and Killoffer were later influences, and Joe Coleman an earlier one examples provided below in the order listed above, beginning with Gary panter From Palace of Champions , et al If your interest in comics is story driven, with little interest in the experimental fringes of comic art, you ll fucking hate this Storywise, it s a 1 star book, artistically it s a 5 star Bonus Art 2 by Gary Panter, and 1 Gary Panter Charles Burns collaboration

    The spastic artwork gave me a huge headache at first But after persevering and picking up the book after a day of rest it all started to make some form of sense.

    I mostly found the text impenetrable and eventually just started focusing on the drawings Lots of weirdo stuff here and it s pretty great The text was undecipherable for me and a little too edgy for me.

    The art is amazing but the content is just like a edgelord story, just not that great.

    A chaotic artistic style and mirror writing font made this graphic novel very difficult to follow, but still, what a creative achievement
