David Boring ist ein 19-jähriger Wachmann. Als er das Mädchen
seiner Träume findet, gerät alles aus den Fugen. Sein obsessives
Wesen führt zu allerlei Irrungen und Wirrungen.
Meet David Boring: a nineteen-year-old security guard with a
tortured inner life and an obsessive nature. When he meets the girl
of his dreams, things begin to go awry: what seems too good to be
true apparently is. And what seems truest in Boring's life is
that, given the right set of circumstances (in this case, an
orgiastic cascade of vengeance, humiliation and murder) the primal
nature of humankind will come inexorably to the fore.For those
interested in comic art's potential, Clowes's work offers
exciting literary possibilities. Boring is Anything but. --Time Dan
"Imagine a tilted comic-book homage to Hitchcock's Vertigo, but with religious cults, fetishistic scrapbooks and scenes of underwater coupling" Guardian "For those interested in comic art's potential, Clowes' work offers exciting literary possibilities. Boring is anything but" Time Magazine "Daniel Clowes' underground comics are now a hipster must-have. Why? Because his work is beautifully drawn with subtle, convincing storylines centred on everyday emotional weirdness" Time Out
Daniel Clowes, 1961 in Chicago, USA, gehört zu den herausragendsten amerikanischen Comicautoren der vergangenen Jahrzehnte.
