Michael Deforge's A Body Beneath!


Freshly-delivered from Koyama Press is this anthology of Michael DeForge’s multi-award winning anthology Lose! For anyone who missed Deforge's early "floppies",  Body Beneath collects issues 2-5, but not issue 1, because as Deforge's introductory comic "Context" explains, "Lose #1 is a very bad comic book!" We might beg to differ, but this anthology nonetheless offers a great opportunity to track the development of Deforge's singular vision and demented productivity. Each issue of Lose originally collected a year's worth of work, and while his signature elements of black humour and surreal body horror were there from the beginning, you can watch his narrative capability grow in leaps and bounds between Lose #2 and #5. If you haven't caught the virulent, flesh-eating, euphoria-inducing bug that is Deforge-mania, A Body Beneath is a great place to start!

Michael DeForge was born in Ottawa, Ontario. He currently lives and works in Toronto as a cartoonist, commercial illustrator, and as an effects, props, and character designer for the hit Cartoon Network program Adventure Time.
