I found Lenore purple nurples uite funny and creepy The characters were very interesting and the Illustrations were very colorful The story lines were good but I felt could have been better the comedy seemed like they weren’t trying to hard but all in all I gave it 4 stars I loved it This book contains four issues Each one is its own continuous story Lenore has come a long way from being like a comic strip to this delightful narrative driven work I was introduced to Lenore last year thanks to the fine folks at Titan Books My review is long gone as my blog crashed a couple of months afterwards however my love of all things Lenore remains So imagine how excited I was to get PURPLE NURPLES in the mail a couple of days ago I’m proud to announce that Lenore gets better with age This new collection is a riotous follow up to SWIRLIES that will have you cringing as much as you laughI mentioned in the last review that the Los Angeles Times describes the Lenore series as “Sweet and strange and slightly discomfortingan unholy union between Tim Burton and Dr Seuss” This holds true throughout this book as well and I can’t think of a better way to describe the odd excellence that is Lenore In LENORE PURPLE NURPLES the titular little dead girl gets into a whole new mess of problems and this time she even incites the wrath of the evil Creepig I found this part to be my favorite of this series especially when she and Ragamuffin watch their friend Pooty suare off against the foul beast What commences next is the greatest battle of all timeI cannot find a single flaw with the LENORE series which is a huge compliment It never gets stale it doesn’t rehash things previously seen and it keeps the laughs and cringes coming at a steady pace In short it’s immensely entertaining and full of originalityLENORE PURPLE NURPLES is a huge win for me and I can’t wait to see what author Roman Dirge does next With any luck we won’t have to wait another year to see a new collection published But even if we do I definitely have to check it out Give this one a look for sure When Titan Books asked me if I would like a copy of Lenore – Purple Nurples to review I jumped at the chance Admittedly it has been awhile since I’ve read any Lenore but I’ve always been a fan How can you not be? She’s so cute? And deadFor those not familiar with Lenore she’s a staple with the goth crowd Written by Roman Dirge she has a uniue sense of life and humor that is all her own She could have easily been made into a Tim Burton movie back when his films were good And now she’s back in new adventures in Purple NurplesLenore – Purple Nurples features some new stories including one about a homicidal pig ghost which is definitely my favorite If you want macabre giggles you’ll want to read that one I also especially liked the story titled “The Dweller in the Fridge” which had some cute surprises especially at the end All of these stories though are what you expect from Dirge they are twisted and funny The book also features the very first sketch that Dirge drew of Lenore along with some other nice additional artworkIf you’re a Lenore fan pick this one up but even if you’re new to the title and like your humor on the dark side you’ll appreciate Lenore – Purple Nurples Let’s be honest – I was a little embarrassed by how much I loved Lenore She’s cute adorable and oh yeah she’s also dead Therein lies the allure of it – she’s so macabre and at times so gross that you can’t help but giggle even if it’s a horrified one When she thinks she is a “poop chop” seriously I didn’t want to laugh But I did As Lenore herself says “Let us never speak of this” With titles such as “Here lies King Douche Nozzle” you are taken on a sinister ride through un life Lenore style My favorite chapter “The Dweller in the Fridge” contains pink cake and dead clowns in the basement I don’t even know what to say to describe it It’s very cringe worthy and funny at the same time In the bonus features there is a drawing of a baby rabbit innocent and fluffy standing over a deadly carrot with a bite mauled out of it It’s awesome There is also a copy of the first drawing of Lenore who has evolved from looking dead to looking cute dead if that’s possible This was my first foray into the world of Lenore and I’m both scared and excited to try her again Oh I do love that cute little dead girl and Roman Dirge for bringing her into the world Here we find Lenore dealing with the stresses and strains of Creepig Creeping scary fridge monsters and giving her tiny friends the best day of their lives We also have lots of lovely bonus material including the first ever drawing of Lenore and an introduction by Clint Blackwood Roman's friend fan and originator of Creepig What can I say but get it and all the previous volumes and fall in love with Lenore yourself Dirge still has the magical ability to make me simultaneously laugh hysterically and cringe inwardly I'm mean so much of the humor is just so wrong You can't help but love Lenore even as you're disgusted by her And her adventures just defy the imagination Thumbs up and looking forward to How delighted I was to find this Roman Dirge has resurrected fond memories of my past with Purple Nurples This graphic novel was funny and a joy to read like all the Lenores before it Highly recommended I'm less of a fan of Lenore's longer story arcs but this is actually one of the better Lenore stories in recent years It's almost as funny as the original stuff but still nothing compares to Noogies and Wedgies
