Cathy Malksian, Percy Gloom (Fantagraphics, 2007). Percy Gloom is a lovely little (well, big actually) book that is, at its heart, about the dangers of oversheltering. Malkasian takes the usual formula and expands it, creating an entire society whose watchword is caution.

Cathy Malkasian is an animation director and cartoonist. It's clear from the beginning that Percy Gloom's story is a fable, and as such, the joy here is in watching Cathy Malkasian's gentle, humorous, and heart-filled story unfold with simplicity -- and also with profound truths. Of course, you will come for the beautiful story, but you will probably linger for the gorgeous artwork. Not coincidence, this

Cathy Malkasian has made the jump from animation to the printed page with a graceful, delicate leap. Humorous and bewitching at the same time, Percy Gloom is a unique gem of a story. Occupying an unreal world of secret societies, benevolent families, and bureaucratic security, lazy-eyed Percy Gloom fights to overcome the loss of his wife, Lila, to a truth-pointing, lotharian, cult-leader. Approached by his doctor to help protect some special people and given advice by some talking goats, Percy comes to terms with his place in the gloomy world and finds himself reaching enlightenment (literally).

Easily the best graphic novel/comic I've ever had the pleasure to read.

I've started six or seven paragraphs now, trying to describe why I love this book, but I've deleted each one- I guess words can't describe it, you've just got to read it. Please read it, I believe it will make you happy.

I'll just say - what a gem! This book is special and unique in every possible way! Whimsical, beautiful drawings... endearing and dreamy world... sophisticated and deep yet with gentle humor...... You can see that the artist has an experience of being a director in animation - all the expressions and the flow of the book is impaccable... rare find!

one of my favorite graphic novel writers of all times

The artwork is delightful, very much in the same vein as ''The Stinky Cheese Man.'' The story is very unique and exciting as well - I couldn't put it down once I started. Definitely pick this up if you're looking for something new and different.

I'm not sure I can describe what a beautiful and thoughtful book 'Percy Gloom' is. Teetering between sinister and transcendental, the story feels so genuine and heartfelt, never smug or cynical, a sin I feel is easily committed in writing such a fantastic, surreal story.

Percy is a beautifully realized character, neurotic but ever so polite and meek. Informed that he may not use a goat's water fountain to wash out his mouth, Percy begs, pouting: "Oh mercy - mercy please! A very infected foot was just placed forcefully into my mouth!" When Percy's friend Bernard asks the hungry Percy if he likes hot-dogs, Percy responds that "Yes. They are a very intelligent species, flapping their tongues to expel heat."

This is not a novel of eccentricity for eccentricity's sake. Malkasian has created a strong plot containing running, subtle themes concerning mortality, regret, and self-discovery. This is certainly a novel that one will enjoy reading again and again, whereas most graphic novels I buy - often simpler and less 'meaty' - usually only interest me the first time around. Like Sparkwatson commented, I truly hope this is not the last of Percy Gloom.

And check out the Percy Gloom website to hear the goat song!

I just finished this book, and must say I haven't read a graphic novel like this that affected me for a while. Initially in reading it I assumed it was another one of those comics that tries to be "edgy" by being bizarre and abstract. However the more I read it the more apparent it is that the author skillfully explores some deep themes regarding life and the courage to accept life on life's terms. Give this book a try!

Cathy Malksian, Percy Gloom (Fantagraphics, 2007)

Percy Gloom is a lovely little (well, big actually) book that is, at its heart, about the dangers of oversheltering. Malkasian takes the usual formula and expands it, creating an entire society whose watchword is caution. (The product warnings in Malkasian's world look quite similar to our own. Not coincidence, this.) Everywhere in this world, we see the consequences of rampant paranoia spiraled out of control, including (but certainly not limited to) an overly competitive cautionary writer who injures himself in spectacular ways on the job so as to gain social status. (His project when we meet him: rigging up a contraption to drop an entire set of encyclopedias on his head.) From this premise, all Malkasian had to do was think a bit about the logical consequences of this insanity, and the end product is Percy Gloom. I rather hesitate to use the term "cautionary tale", but there's certainly an undercurrent of "we're headed this way, and we should take a look at it" beneath this enchanting, if depressing, piece of work. Highly recommended. ****
Great book, unlike anything out there.
Looking forward to more work from this artist.
