I think the title says it all for this one!  A crude (not meaning to be rude) art style and I think this works because Berberian is obviously having fun!  From Turkish cinema and its horror, crime, sci fi –in fact crime, sex, Spaghetti Westerns and science fiction films from the 1950s, through to Japanese movies such as Ultra Man and Godzilla.

Again, there is the use of single colours or earthy tones that seem to be well thought out in these Euro albums.  This is like a zine (Small Press) comic in colour and with a hard cover!  Enough fun to smirk at and if you are a film buff you’ll recognise a lot in here –especially if you are into awful movies!
