Adult contemporary

by Bendik Kaltenborn | 20 February 2015
Category: Novels Graphic
Synopsis
Look through Bendik Kaltenborn's kaleidoscopic glasses and glimpse the world the way he sees it: a vibrantly colourful planet populated by lumpy, big-nosed people totally absorbed in their own off-kilter personal dramas. Adult Contemporary is a collection of odd imaginings, surrealist comics, and physical comedy gags from Kaltenborn, a New Yorker and New York Times illustrator. - - People scramble around in a world they don't understand, happy as can be. An author finds unexpected and lethal love in his own garden. A marriage is threatened by soup. Drunk old men quarrel about literature in the witching hour. A con details a small and silly bank robbery from the 1980s. CEOs do push-ups. - - Norwegian cartoonist Bendik Kaltenborn's Adult Contemporary reads as homage to the art of mid-twentieth century cartooning and absurdist sketch comedy. His characters pace about like Groucho Marx, pratfall like Dick Van Dyke, and mug like Jim Carrey. His virtuosic gift as an illustrator and designer shines through in these pages; indisputable in the multiplicity of styles he employs, and in the immediate appeal of the book as a whole. From extended, off-beat jokes about obnoxious businessmen to gorgeous full-page gag illustrations, Adult Contemporary is always able to find something to laugh at. -
