Summary

By appropriating and subverting Tintin creator Hergé's classic 'œclear line' style, Joost Swarte revitalized European alternative comics in the 1970s with a series of satirical, musically elegant, supremely beautifully drawn short stories '” often featuring his innocent, magnificently-quiffed Jopo de Pojo, or his orotund scientist character, Anton Makassar.Under Swarte's own exacting supervision, Modern Swarte will collect virtually all of his alternative comics work from 1972 to date, including the RAW magazine stories that brought him fame among American comics aficionados in the 1980s. Especially great pains will be taken to match Swarte's superb coloring, which includes stories executed in watercolor, comics printed in retro duotones, fiendishly clever use of Zip-a-Tone screens, and much more. (There's even a story about how to color comics art using those screens, with Makassar as the teacher.)Other noteworthy stories include Swarte's take on an episode from Hergé's early days, a Fats Domino story, and a tribute to the legendary 'œUpside-Downs' strip, and a story titled simply 'œModern Art.'
