Spanish cartoonist Joan Cornellà’s viciously funny Mox Nox comic strips have struck such a nerve on social media that his Facebook page has garnered over one million fan followers. A quick glance indicates why. Each single page strip is a wordless, full-color, hand-painted marvel of the comic strip form. That Cornellà’s visually inviting artwork is in the service of his graphic sense of humor/horror only heightens the appeal. Mox Nox is populated almost exclusively by smiling psychopaths who invariably turn even the most mundane situation into a side-splitting and cringe-inducing farce. Cornell`a’s humor mixes the absurdist comedy of Michael Kupperman with the transgressive, political incorrectness of Johnny Ryan. This is Cornell`a’s long-awaited first book to be published in the U.S.
