One of the great comic finds of the 20th century, this is an original, never before published 200 page 'Jimbo' graphic novel drawn by Gary Panter in 1983. This is the most ambitious and sustained comics narrative of Panter's career, and it is remarkable that it has remained hidden for so long. Originally conceived for a Japanese audience, Panter utilises a simple two-panel per page layout and employs an unusually accessible style to tell the story of a mysterious tribal figure named Kokomo, who dreams a wild, picaresque interlude starring Jimbo and Bob War.
