Perramus: The City and Oblivion (Hardcover)

Quick Overview

Fantagraphics collects the graphic novel Perramus ― winner of an Amnesty International prize ― in English for the first time.

This graphic novel follows the existential odyssey of a political dissident. When he voluntarily loses his memory, he's dubbed "Perramus" from the brand of his raincoat. During his absurdist travels, he teams up with the gruff Cannelloni; a foreign aviator dubbed "The Enemy" by despot Mr. Whitesnow; and the blind author "Borges" (based on the real-life literary figure), who comes to be a guide.

Fantagraphics collects the graphic novel Perramus ― winner of an Amnesty International prize ― in English for the first time.

This graphic novel follows the existential odyssey of a political dissident. When he voluntarily loses his memory, he's dubbed "Perramus" from the brand of his raincoat. During his absurdist travels, he teams up with the gruff Cannelloni; a foreign aviator dubbed "The Enemy" by despot Mr. Whitesnow; and the blind author "Borges" (based on the real-life literary figure), who comes to be a guide.

This motley crew journeys to outlandish locales where they encounter a variety of eccentric characters ― including a director of trailers for films that will never exist; a guerilla  fbeforce of circus folk, clowns, and puppeteers; a tin-pot dictator with a vast fortune built on an empire of excrement; and Ronald Reagan.

This highly anticipated collection is an act of resistance in and of itself ― it was created while Argentina's military dictatorship was still in power. Perramus is a cartooning tour de force, with a revolutionary message that remains vital to this day.
