JIMBO ADVENTURES IN PARADISE SCNEW YORK REVIEW COMICS
Gary Panter is one of America's great creative forces: illustrator for the trailblazing punk magazine and record label Slash, set designer for the legendary TV show Pee-wee's Playhouse, and one of the wildest, most innovative comics artists of all time. Jimbo: Adventures in Paradise is a leap into the uproarious life of Panter's ever-cheerful punk everyman, Jimbo, and a perfect introduction to Panter's ever-shifting style. Amid a jumbled cityscape of rundown NYC streets and futuristic LA freeways, Jimbo crowd surfs at a riot, makes amends with Ernie Bushmiller's Nancy, and rescues his pal Smoggo's sister from giant cockroaches, all while the world teeters between extravagance and apocalypse. Veering between the crude and the elegant, the wise and the funny, Jimbo: Adventures in Paradise proves Panter is a master of cartooning, and still way ahead of the rest of us.
