Zoot #1

Zoot #1, November 1992, Fantagraphics Books
by Andrew & Roger Langridge

I'm trying to understand Zoot. I really am. A combination of short stories not unlike Night fuits, the book I read on Thanksgiving, Zoot features a series of bad jokes and existential conversations, like The Kings of Queens meets Waiting for Godot with a touch of Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus. Some of the contributions are insightful, like The Derek Seals Story, but most of them fall flat, like the page dedicated to a news report communicated through animal-oriented puns. I don't know. I've worked a fifteen hour day and comics are the furthest thing on my mind. Hopefully tomorrow will be a more fruitful day, blog-wise.
