Six Hundred and Seventy-Six Apparitions of Killoffer
How many times have you walked past an attractive person in the street and wondered "what if?" Well, if you're Killoffer, the writer and artist of this horrific fantasy, it probably happens quite a lot. The main difference between the Killoffer in the book and the rest of us however, is that each time his eye is caught, another version of himself appears - one to keep walking, the other to stop and try his chances.
Because of his wandering eye, there are soon a lot of Killoffers on the scene. And that Killoffer doesn't have a particularly high opinion of himself becomes all too apparent, as his various alter-egos start to spiral out of control. What starts as a humorous if somewhat bleak examination of Killoffer's psyche, rapidly deteriorates into a dark and savage shock-fest.
The illustration is wonderful. Panels on pages are blended into one another, using backgrounds and architecture to break down the action. The later pages, crammed with Killoffers, still retain an powerful structure amongst the chaos of the illustration.
If you like your art bleak and intelligent, prefer your comedy black as night, enjoy a little stomach churning horror and have an appreciation of how easy it could be for us to slip outside the necessary boundaries of civil society, Six Hundred and Seventy-Six Apparitions of Killoffer is bound to prove a guilty joy. But sensitive dispositions need not apply.
