The first graphic novel from a master of theform, co-starring his beloved Frank character.
From the Publisher:
After embarking on a transformative journey and attaining enlightenment, Manhog sets out to undo a wrong he has inadvertently brought about: The transformation of the evil politician Whim into a mind-destroying plant-demon who distorts and enslaves Frank and his friends.
Annotation:
Readers who follow Jim Woodring's steady development of his wordless, black-and-white comics world known as the Unifactor will be delighted by this, his first full-length graphic novel. Frank, the anthropomorphic creature whose adventures typically provide the focus for Woodring's comics, has only a supporting role in WEATHERCRAFT. Instead readers will spend time with Manhog, whose name is descriptive of his visage. Words do not do justice to the bizarre and wholly original story Woodring tells here, but suffice it to say that there is nothing quite like it. Selected by Publishers Weekly as a 2010 Top 100 Book.

Praise

"[B]lissfully cruel fables, set in a world of grotesque entities and psychedelic minarets: half unshakable nightmare, half Chunk Jones cartoon filtered through the Bhagavad Gita." - Douglas Wolk 06/06/2010

"Woodring's imagery evokes amusement, bemusement and wonder." - Richard Pachter 06/27/2010

"A book that sticks with you like a virus....There is a creeping message of sorts, about the wages of greed and what happens to curious cats, but it's mired in a universe of deeply strange beauty and not always easy to divine." (starred review) 07/19/2010
