Created over a period of ten years by the acclaimed Spanish cartoonist Max (The Extended Dream of Mr. D, Drawn and Quarterly), Bardín the Superrealist is a suite of stories, musings and gags that, much like Dan Clowess Ice Haven, can be readMoreCreated over a period of ten years by the acclaimed Spanish cartoonist Max (The Extended Dream of Mr. D, Drawn and Quarterly), Bardín the Superrealist is a suite of stories, musings and gags that, much like Dan Clowess Ice Haven, can be read individually or together as one overarching story.Heavily influenced by surrealists such as Luis Bunuel, and graphically by clear-line cartoonists from Herge (Tintin) to Chris Ware, Bardín the Superrealist begins when everyman Bardín finds himself suddenly transported (well, at least his upper half) to another dimension, where an Andalusian Dog (a reference to Bunuels Un Chien Andalou) serves as his ill-tempered guide.In a series of vignettes, gags, illustrations, text pieces, and dream stories, ping-ponging back between the surrealist world and the real world, Bardín examines, questions, and defends his own beliefs, convictions and philosophies while tangling with the Dog and the Holy Trinity in a variety of guises (including a familiar-looking mouse with red shorts and white gloves).In other stories, he imagines himself in a painting by Brueghel the Elder, tries to deal with his onanism in a productive way, is enlightened, dodges his real creator Max in the street, has several horrific nightmares and marvelous hallucinations, and, in the books climactic episode, The Sound and the Fury, battles a bona fida dragon.

Bardín the Superrealist is a playful, hilarious, thought-provoking (and beautifully illustrated) major work by one of the great European cartoonists.
