Dark Horse just made my day!
"The first new Beanworld story in print in over a decade, the Beanworld Holiday Special is the perfect introduction to Larry Marder's inimitable creation!"
"As enjoyable for children as it is enlightening for adults, Beanworld is a grand adventure that explores social dynamics, culture creation, and ecological networks--all in great fun! Take a tour of this magical world, from Proffy's Fix-It Shop to a Fabulous Look-See Show, in this issue that introduces toys to the baby Cuties and plunges readers into one of the most original and brilliant comic-book universes ever created!
"Larry Marder's Beanworld is a vegetarian update on Krazy Kat with a world and lingo unto itself."
--Smithsonian Studies of American Art
"One doesn't read Beanworld at all, one lives it. Beanworld draws you into its world and plays out in your mind. This is a rare feat in any medium, and a treasure in comics."
Also available in December from Dark Horse, a 272 page hardcover collection of the first 9 issues of the original Beanworld series for $20.
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed beanworld when I first discovered it, halfway through it's original run. I'd never experienced a comic book quite like it; it was just pure joy. For you Beanworld fans out there, check out Larry Marder's blog.
