JAN042202J Book of Leviathan hc, 10x7, 160pg, $11.98
'Sale! Was $23.95! Levi, a faceless baby, his stuffed bunny and his friend Cat, live in a world that can literally change at the stroke of a pen. Endowed with an unusual interest in metaphysics and philosophy but confused by adult behavior, the infant Levi investigates life's great mysteries. Wonderful combinations of varying techniques and color.' The text says 'SC, 10x7, 64 pgs, PC SRP: $9.99' but there's only one edition and it's as I say above; the $11.98 is what my dealer's charging. Matt Groening has written 'Peter Blegvad's comic strip is one of the
greatest, weirdest things I've ever stared at.' Oh, yes. It doesn't feel extremely furry, though the talking cat is almost as big a character as Levi, but I'd personally rank it above any other furry item this month,
including *Finder* #34 and the two Blacksad graphic novels. Of course, you do have to like weird stuff. For some sample strips and sequences, in a one-panel-per-page
presentation, see http://www.leviathan.co.uk/menu.html. Check out 'Levi searches for his lost parents' in the archives, a marvelous adaptation of a Nez Percé myth. One of my favorites, not included there: Levi is tied to a track as an enormous, impressively detailed train rushes toward him, only yards away. Levi: 'Crikey! If this cartoon was animated, I'd be a goner!' Cat: 'Just keep perfectly still!'
JAN042728F Spongebob Squarepants Cine-Manga volume 4 (Of 4): Crime and
Funishment gn sc, 5x7, 96pg, $7.99

'A crime wave hits the underwater town of Bikini Bottom, and SpongeBob SquarePants is right in the middle of it! As if "borrowing" balloons with his best friend Patrick and trying to cover up accidentally killing the health inspector at the Krusty Krab wasn't bad enough, SpongeBob gets his boat stolen by his boating instructor and has to fighting evil
with the aging Mermaidman. No matter what, you can count on SpongeBob SquarePants to be at the center of all the action!'
