Having staked a reputation over the last decade as one of Europe's most talented storytellers, Belgian cartoonist Olivier Schrauwen now releases his first book in English. The Man Who Grew His Beard is a collection of seven short stories, each a head-spinning display of craft and storytelling that mixes early 20th century comics influences with a thoroughly contemporary voice that provokes and entertains with subversively surreal humour and subtle criticism of 20th century tropes and images.
These are deeply strange short stories...; even in this short-story-saturated alternative comics climate, there s nothing else like his gestalt of finely calibrated nonsense. It s good to see that comics can do things you d never think to ask of them in the first place. --Sean T. Collins
