Curio Cabinet

Front Cover
Secret Acres, 2010 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 144 pages
Evoking the mystery, treachery and stillness of the woods at night, the stories in John Brodowski's (Kramers Ergot #7) debut collection, Curio Cabinet, are told with lush, wordless visuals. Curio Cabinet's stories chart how characters transcend their lives and situations, for better or worse. Borrowing from familiar sources: horror movies, rock albums and mythology, Brodowski transfroms the horrific to the pedantic and the ordinary to the fantastic, defying narrative expectation and allowing the stories to emerge in purely visual terms. Curio Cabinet marks the arrival of a innovative cartoonist whose style and subject matter is already attracting industry accolades.

About the author (2010)

John Brodowski (Kramers Ergot 7) grew up in an "utterly unremarkable" New England town. Unfortunately this is also where he currently lives. During his brain's most crucial developmental period he enjoyed watching many, many horror movies such as Rawhead Rex, Death Race 2000, and The Toxic Avenger. He also enjoyed staying up very late and eating 10 packs of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. John is currently battling a Pepsi addiction but can't seem to make comics without it. Bottom Line: If you like the movie Cyborg starring Jean-Claude Van Damme then you should buy his comics.
