Slice of life comics about slackers mix with fantastic realism in this borderline offensive set of comics from South American artist Daly.

Using hazy tones of red, orange and yellow, Daly creates a cast of characters who, in sub-Pekar interludes, make art, shop, complain and have fantastical adventures. Women appear only rarely, and usually only to set up a sight gag involving their genitalia. The centerpiece of this collection, "Prebaby" is a wordless piece about birth, which although beautifully drawn, again manages to mostly avoid any female involvement. I found this collection distasteful, and wouldn't want to know any of the characters featured here. ( )
