Olivier Schrauwen makes comics like no one else, so when he decides to do a piece of biographical comics about an adventure involving his grandfather, the only thing that you do know is that you don't know what to expect in the pages of this 250 page oversize hardcover volume printed primarily in blue and red inks.... Arsene Schrauwen embodies a complex synthesis of the most adventurous contemporary approaches to comics signifying and storytelling. Evoking creators like C.F., Yuichi Yokoyama and Frank Santoro to deliver a narrative that turns early twentieth century European colonialism inside out, Schrauwen challenges...
A Body Beneath collects DeForge's flagship title, Lose in a single, affordable volume designed with reading in mind. The release of this volume marks another milestone in the establishment of DeForge at the forefront of contemporary comics, as with its release the bulk of his corpus is now easily available, in this and two other volumes – 2013's Very Casual, also from Koyama, and Ant Colony, a hardcover released earlier this year by Drawn and Quarterly.

This edition remains faithful to the original, but has been updated with a new cover as well as a new introduction by Art Spiegelman (see above) that lays out the genesis of this particular work, helping to place it in the proper historical context. Recommended!
