I treated myself this weekend to a copy of Roman Dirge’s Lenore: Noogies. It’s a graphic novel collection of the first four issues of the adventures of the cute little dead girl. Very Addams Family and Edward Gorey with a darkly comic tone which is reminiscent of Tim Burton’s gorgeous Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy. I’ve written a full review which has just appeared on the Alien Online. One of the most enjoyable Gothic graphic novels I’ve read since Richard Moore’s wonderful Boneyard and Ted Naifeh‘s Courtney Crumrin and the Night Things(both reviewed previously on the Alien). Roman has a web site you can check out here and there is also a site for his publisher, Slave Labor Graphics.
