EL BORBAH PDF

Subsisting entirely on junk food and beer, El Borbah conducts his investigations with tough talk and a short temper. He smashes through doors and skulls as he stalks a perfectly realized film-noir city filled with punks, geeks, business-suited creeps and mad scientists. El Borbah features five science-fiction and true-detective episodes: In "Robot Love," rebellious kids in nightclubs replace their "parts" with mechanical substitutes as part of a new fad, only to find that their parents have been automating themselves all along; in "Love in Vein" a mad visionary sperm donor plans a master race and turns "his" kids against their parents; "Bone Voyage" details the exploits of a cult called the Brotherhood of the Bone, a kind of cross between the Masons and the Mansons. The fantastic plots take up the weird fears of a scientific society, but the action is pure pulp. Charles Burns effortlessly spins yarns with gritty punchlines and pictures so perfect they must have existed in some collective memory of junk drama. And through it all crashes El Borbah, trying to make an honest buck from dishonest people.

A masked Mexican wrestler detective The stories here are pretty straight noir, but everything is just a bit off. All of the cases he takes on, too, just end up in these really bizarre places with adults with baby heads, robot parents or strange wishbone cults. Great, classic Burns comics. January 1, Alfrediux Fantastic compilation of early detective stories by Charles Burns, the comics revolve around the bizarre adventures of El Borbah a giant private detective with a Mexican Luchador outfit and passion for cigarettes and smashing up criminals.

The stories are filled with graphic references to old pulp detective mags, film-noir, aliens, robots, evil secret brotherhoods and all kinds of sci-fi parafernalia, and like all Burns comics the pure black and white artwork is stunning.

Definitely a must read. Not a masterpiece like Black Hole but chock full of signifiers both fun and profound. Originally published as Hard-Boiled Defective Stories, I read a few of these stories while I was in high school and was turned off by the art edge. January 1, Mikey Came to Charles Burns late. I like this one least, but should should qualify that as being the least among an insanely beautiful oeuvre.

If you pick this one to begin you might love it Is damn shame Orson Welles is not around to direct and star in the movie versions of these January 1, Jon Hewelt Man, this was so much fun. Amidst the body grotesquery, Charles Burns can be quite a serious and meaningful author.

El Borbah goes to some strange-ass places, and I loved every minute of reading it. January 1, Michael Early Charles Burns collected. A private dick who wears a Mexican wrestling match investigates a variety of cases - the stories are all entertaining. El Borbah is kidna like Hellboy - phisically strong detective, conducting investigations in the land of strangeness. The art once again is great but the dialogue and character theme reminds me of Strong Bad on the Wii Entertainment System.

Although these comics came out before the Wii, still Very interesting from Charles Burns. A Classic, I recommend this to anyone. January 1,
