Deconstructing Comics #343: “Mauretania”: perplexing, fascinating stuff

MauretaniaIn Chris Reynolds’ “Mauretania” comics, characters bake interesting pies, delight in eerie shops, join trendy police forces, and report on events they will never remember. Stories drift from point to point like dreams. School starts and a kid on summer vacation somehow doesn’t notice. How can this be real? Real it may be, but it takes intuition, not rational thought, to take anything away from these books. Tim and Kumar ponder Adventures From Mauretania, The Dial and Other Stories, and the graphic novel Mauretania.

And if we haven’t sold you on these books, then read Seth’s fantastic essay on them!
