Common questions children ask themselves in the dead of night. But what if, instead of those rather innocuous queries, the child asks things like: Whats inside this bunny that makes him move? What if I put a raisin in a dead mans nose? If I leave the paw of a deceased mole in the sun, will it grow sprouts and fungus like potatoes? This is the world of Renee French, whos independent comic book stories have been disturbing readers and provoking reactions since the early 90s. Onis hefty collection, Marbles In My Underpants, is the first major volume of her work to be published anywhere. Its a comprehensive retrospective, examining Frenchs versatility and the spectrum of her career, from the harsh early work in Grit Bath up to Cornys Fetish, a touching tale of a lonely man and his desire for love. Through horror, psychedelia, and, ultimately, a skewed approach to conventional storytelling, French gets to the dark middle of the human psyche, crafting a truly unique comic-book experience.
