Dollmatrix cover Dollmatrix p11
56 pages, 10" x 7", by Marc Van Elburg http://tellab.home.xs4all.nl/ lobomatic [at] xs4all [dot] nl, Crippa XXX Almqvist www.maximumschreck.blogspot.com crippaluvu4poost [at] hotmail [dot] com and Zeke Clough www.zekeclough.co.uk

Recently I was hitting the suds at a pub with David Puckeridge and showed him Dollmatrix. I admitted that I had no idea about how to even begin to review it. I pointed to one of the pages and said, "In 25 words or less, please tell me what the hell is going on here." David said, "Well, there's your review!"

But that's too short. I need to write more. One thing that happens when I open this book and look at the pages, I immediately feel some warning or internal alarm. Something is very wrong here. It's a bad scene, a bad trip. The valves have been fully opened and all the dark and twisted stuff has been emptied out onto the pages. I see what appears to be a factory where blobs and lumpy beings squirt body fluids at each other, having the time of their lives.

This is comix reading as endurance test. How many pages can you look at before you are overwhelmed?

One for the daredevils.

Henriette Valium
Reminds me of Valium at his prime. He's gotten tired/lazy in the past few years. Can't blame him.

I've been trying to figure out how to order this. Not there yet. The guy's a Brit, apparently, from the use of the word "Oi!".

Re: Henriette Valium
I sure take that it "reminds you of Valium at his prime" as a huge compliment. And when it comes to order a copy of Dollmatrix, then just contact me per e-mail:


Btw, Marc comes from Netherlands..Zeke lives in England..and myself is a finnish swede living in Berlin. But it wasn't Zeke who wrote the word "Oi!" in the drawing above. It was me. I like Blitz and Violators.

Screened comment
Why are comments screened? Because they're anonymous and might be nasty and have to be approved by the moderator?

Anyway, Crippa responded to my comment. Didn't say much. Told me to use his email (given above) to order this comic.

Weeell, I did mention that this "reminds me of Valium at his prime" is something I take as a huge compliment!
Also that Marc lives in Netherlands, Zeke as a brit of course in England, and myself is a finnish swede living in Berlin, Germoney. And that it actually was me who wrote "Oi!" in the speech bubble above, since I now like Blitz and Violators etc.
