KRAZY!

September 2008

“What’s interesting about KRAZY! is its attempt to appeal to different crowds – the stereotypical fan boy, the “serious” aesthete, and the arm’s-length gallery goer in search of edutainment. …it’s a highly enjoyable exhibit.”

August 2008

“There is so much to see in the display that by the end you have trouble keeping it all separate in your head. Having this book is a wonderful supplement to that experience. …The presence of these art forms surround us on a daily basis and it is a delight to see them recognized for their artistic merit in addition to the entertainment value they each offer.”

KRAZY!

July 2008

“[The book] stands alone as an exploration into the somewhat cultish worlds of comics, ‘graphic novels’, cartoons, computer and video games, anime, manga and other visual art. …If you thought that cartoons were simply about a cat and mouse throwing bricks at each other, grab this book and find out why a weekly comic strip can be called an ‘epic-poem’.”

June 2008

“A gorgeous coffee-table tome by any standard, KRAZY! is nonetheless hard to evaluate. A detail of Pac-Man makes us consider the game as a visual statement. A finished comic-book page by artist Kevin Huizenga accompanied by his sketchbook entry for the same shows how fully fleshed out his ideas are even in the nascent stage. And there is manga galore. If it’s not always clear how all this fits together, it’s still hard not to be impressed.”

May 2008

Krazy! offers a comprehensive survey of this heavily-consumed niche of graphic art, covering everything from ironic New Yorker comics, to the iconic retro graphics of Pac-Man, to the pixellated pop art of Roy Lichtenstein. Articulate and intellectual articles accompany the loud images, explaining their history and significance.”

“[The exhibit] is one of the VAG’s most appealing and cohesive spectacles in recent memory. Even the catalogue is a cut above. KRAZY! is a juiced-up teaser-trailer, 72 cubic inches of full-colour stills, cells, renderings and drawings, plus pages of the conversational commentary from which Grenville distilled the exhibition’s curatorial signage.”
