THE CABBIE by Marti

Coming out of the Spanish Underground Comics scene of the late 1970’s (as featured in El Vibora magazine, and later debuting in English in RAW) Marti’s Cabbie is a twisted homage/reworking of the Chester Gould/Dick Tracy framework, bringing the brutal but pitch perfect sensibility of Gould’s comics into the contemporary art world.  The Cabbie is a vigilante cab driver, and this is his amoral tale of stolen inheritances, Catholic guilt, and raw justice, as he descends into the underworld of a depraved crime family.  Addictive and compelling, with a sly sense of absurdism, the Cabbie comes highly recommended.  Lovingly printed in luscious b+w, with a must-read introduction by Art Spiegelman.  84 pages, 9″ x 12″, hardcover. (Fantagraphics)
