Liniers, Matt Groening

Macanudo: Welcome to Elsewhere

On sale date: August 23, 2022

Fantagraphics is proud to bring Argentine cartoonist "Liniers" and his critically acclaimed comic strip to the English-speaking readership for the first time since appearing in American newspapers.

In the spirit of Calvin & Hobbes, Mutts, and Krazy Kat, Liniers (Ricardo Siri) uses a shifting cast of children, talking animals, imaginary monsters, sensitive robots, occasional elves, and anthropomorphized objects to perform gags, philosophize, muse on nature, and engage in surreal, artistic flights of fancy. With delicate, calligraphic pen work and understated watercolors, the comic trips lightly from style to style and subject to subject, as Liniers allows his imagination and observational humor free reign. Jokes about domestic life, imagined scenarios of historical figures, Cthulu showing up to Tinder dates, characters simply enjoying a pastoral sunset, the puncturing of pop-culture stalwarts: Macanudo is a boundless frame for its author's humane and delightfully off-kilter view of the world, in a way few comic strips have ever even attempted.

Beginning in 2002 in Buenos Aires and spreading around the world, Macanudo has been appearing in US newspapers via King Features Syndicate since 2018. Welcome to Elsewhere is the first of a series of volumes collecting Liniers' groundbreaking strip.
