Reviews - What do customers think about Welcome To The Dahl House: Alienation, Incarceration, and Inebri In The New American Rome?

bitter, hilarious, and peachy keen  Apr 14, 2008
I had read some of these as mini-comics years ago but it's nice to have them all in a single handsome paperback collection. His dry "skill shares" veer from frighteningly useful ("How to Get Arrested") to hilariously useless ("I Pee In the Shower," "Put Frozen Bananas In Your Cereal"). His illustrations of Craigslist "missed connections" entries are worth the price of the book by themselves. Ken Dahl savages mindless right-wing nationalism but is also sharply introspective and self-critical -- the book includes not one but two different stories ("Eniz" and "Blind Fart") about the tail-chasing pointlessness of his own samizdat cartooning efforts. The artwork is cartoony but detailed; at times I am reminded of some of Dan Clowes' Eightball stories. In his obsessive quest to render disgusting people in as repulsive a manner as possible (see "M4W" for a prime example) Dahl reminds me of Jack Chick. I only wish this collection had included some of his political cartoons from the Honolulu Weekly.
