surrealistic graphic novel

10

Being the 4th of July does not change the fact that today is still –

Surreal Saturday!

That’s right. To commemorate this patriotic holiday we remember our French revolutionary comrades by concluding Max Ernst’s La Cour du Dragon (”The Court of the Dragon”) from his 1934 surrealist graphic novel Une semaine de bonté (“A Week of Kindness”). It seems ironic, or perhaps fittingly surreal, that this narrative of melodramatic and violent smokey interiors would end furtively outside on a cold winter night.
