  1. Honestly, I did not have high hopes for this book other than color palette and I was surprised A smart, sexy, yes very sexy, spy book And it had the same cheekiness I found in Laura Weinstein s Goddess of War despite being published decades before in another language Enjoyed most of the back matter describing Peellaert s subsequent freelance career thanks to Jodelle Liked this book so much I made a mini mural.Caveat I work for the company that published this title.


  2. In one word Superb This is not only an over sized version of the comic strip The Adventures of Jodelle, but also a mini retrospective on the works of Guy Peelaert, who among other things, worked with Serge Gainsbourg, William Klein, and was totally in tuned with the American pop art scene of the 1960s Which by the way, the comic strip reads like a manifesto of the times and to this day, the graphics are at least as fresh as youth going for their first kiss It s a remarkable book The first part i [...]


  3. I d never seen or heard of these Jodelle comics, but just to flip through the book is like a blast into another time Apparently Peelaert was the Andy Warhol of Europe and it is not hard to see how His art is psychedelic fabulous The colors and style and crazy naked cartoon battles were a blast My feminist sensibilities were sore a couple pages in though Women using sex as power was probably huge at the time, but it hits me now as exploitative and not always entertaining I love the colors and bol [...]


  4. I was a little uncomfortable at first this is a hyper sexualized book with copious amounts of female nudity, and comics only very rarely rise above the level of 12 year old boy when it comes to maturity about sexuality but once I settled in, I had a genuinely great time Peellaert s colors are legendarily gorgeous, and his sense of design is fantastic as well But most of all, what I love here is the book s loopy surrealism, its rampant, madcap sense of fun The book also includes extensive backmat [...]


  5. Chickadees with spy skills, an allergy to clothing, and boundless love of freedom this is the company Brussels born cult artist Guy Peellaert kept when he shook the art and comic strip worlds in the mid 1960s The reprint of his work by Fantagraphics proves that Peellaert s now ageing Jodelle is no less irresistible than she used to be.Full review agendamagazine en blog


  6. What a nutty story The art really grabbed me it reminded me of the Yellow Submarine animation And everyone can appreciate drawings of curvy attractive ladies I had trouble following the goofy, zany plot, but it was fun nonetheless.




  7. Stupid plot, dumb jokes, and incredibly unsexy for an erotica comic The only decent thing is the coloring, with a bright palette that really pops off the page.
