Haunted: (Drawn and Quarterly)

By Mike Sebastian

French superstar Philippe Dupuy’s autobiographical graphic novel is sublime, profane, hallucinatory and a wholly original work of art. Dupuy depicts himself as a jogger who envisions a series of introspective encounters in the form of lucid dreams, which involve a self-amputating dog, Lucha Libre wrestlers, the anthropomorphic “Forest Friends” and his mother.

At first glance the roughly sketched illustrations, which bring to mind the doodle quality of John Lennon’s portraits, belie their understated expressive power. But they soon suck you into the dream world. This is a transcendent work.

Grade: A
