"The rough-edged Latin American minimalist, stylized black-and-white comic strips of Gilbert Hernandez have been widely described as the graphic equivalent to the fabulism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, the Nobel laureate." "As Hernandez matures, he's expanding his style of storytelling into something close to the work of Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Harumi Murakami and other creators of haunted landscapes where reality becomes a question of perception rather than a set of objective facts." After nearly three decades in the business, Hernandez is primarily a 'pure cartoonist, ' working straight from his id, and Chance in Hell is best read as an inspired ramble through his fevered psyche. Hernandez began his career as a flippant punk, but this book is his most sustained howl of fear and rage. (Grade: A) " The rich emotions and passionate characters of Hernandez are translated to a welcome new graphic novel, which fills B-movie situations with real drama... Hernandez takes his readers on a harrowing journey that examines the damage done in childhood and how it affects the individual as she moves on through life. It's heavy stuff, but highly recommended. " Gilbert Hernandez remains the most consistently surprising and shocking storyteller in comics and this 'exploitation movie' featuring one of his characters in a supporting 'role' is a tale of survival, coming of age and emotional damage that s as spooky and dark as any movie by David Lynch. --Adi Tantimedh" A terrifying graphic novel. Couldn't put it down, so disturbing and merciless. --Junot Diaz" It is bravura comic book work. But be prepared for a visceral, stomach-turning assault I really didn't understand what I was getting into and got caught completely off-guard. Mind = reeling... [Hernandez] is still swinging for the fences and hitting grand slams, several decades into his career. Astonishing. --Sandy Bilus" Chance in Hell is a visually stunning book that challenges its readers with a story that does not fit neatly into any genre. A book that forces readers to think and ask questions, this is a disturbingly tragic story that is still able to engage its readers. It is a book that dares to walk over the edge of what is expected, and with an able guide such as Gilbert Hernandez, one can be sure of landing softly as the ground swiftly approaches. --Chris Beckett Chance in Hell is a visually stunning book that challenges its readers with a story that does not fit neatly into any genre.
