Boerke bijbel by Pieter De Poortere

A collection of De Poortere’s popular one-page graphic stories about “Boerke” (“Wee farmer”) or sometimes his cousin “Hoerke” (“Wee whore”) who endure the craziness of the universe, usually dying in some all too plausible way at the end. Not really for me; too much punching down, rather than punching up, and an attitude of depressed fatalism leading nowhere very much.

One thought on “Boerke bijbel by Pieter De Poortere

  1. I read Charles Yu’s “Third Class Superhero” short story collection. Patchy I thought, didn’t compel me to go after the novel. Obviously a talent, though.
