Graphic novelist Josh Simmons House returns with a harrowing and genre bending collection of modern horror short stories that could curl the toes of a corpse in The Furry PDF a state of rigor mortis Simmons disturbing uncomfortable and even confrontational stories often work on multiple levels straight uncompromising horror blackly humorous satirical riffs on the genre or as vicious assaults against the political correctness that rules so much of our popular culture His artwork excels in conveyin. Deliberately shocking and offensive horror comics in the tradition of splatter porn I guess Disturbing I think of Crumb who was asked why he did some of his most shocking stuff and he said he didn t know where it came from didn t really want his daughter to see it was also kind of disturbed by it Okay so I experienced it and will wash my hands of it This is about violence sexual violence Johnny Ryan territory and I don t uite get it am not cool enough to say I think it is so awesome dude as some hipster artists would and Simmons doesn t give a damn whether I like it or not If he were to get popular he would hate himself and all his fans It has that Dead Kennedy hate your audience punk feel to it Good I hate you too JoshI also just today read Al Columbia s Pim and Francie which is also disturbing and could be seen in the same category as Simmons as horror comics but Columbia s work is amazing to me ambitious Still disturbing and deliberately disturbing but somehow impressive and thoughtful complex layered See my review of that if you care enough about these kinds of comics I might just not be a horror guy I mean you hardcore Saw types will just snicker when I tell you my kind of horror is this soft core literary variety Neil Gaiman Sandman stuff SO tame dude So it s a matter of taste and literary tastes finally I supposeSo the point of this stuff is not to gain wide recognition it is to be transgressive to shock and it fulfilled its purpose Maybe horror is just meant to horrify to cross lines so you are shocked Simmons is technically proficient and he can tell a story and a variety of stories and they re not ALL disturbing And thank god they are short stories because to sustain the level of disgust for longer within any given story would be doubly brutal But the hell with it I am still not going to give this two stars just because he has some talent in a particular form So there

The Furry Trap

Disarmingly cute yet terrifying demons of Demonwood to the depraved caped crusading antihero in Mark of the Bat Simmons is a master of creating terrifying beasties that inspire and inflict nightmarish horrors usually taken to unforgettable extremesThe individual stories in The Furry Trap stand on their own as mini masterpieces of skin crawling terror but collectively complement each other in a way that only heightens the anxiety and dread pouring from page to page Just remember You've been warne. This is to everyone screaming that they re looking for real horror Get stoned and grab this You ll find yourself opening the book and thinking ah it s just rape again such a boring trope and a turn of a page later you re grimacing because Simmons shows you that he knows exactly where to poke you to make it hurt I hated it Hated how he doesn t hold back on suffering Humans and animals mutilated with the same indifference Men and women raped and killed eually He creates nightmarish settings that in itself unnerved me than the suffering Never again will I read this but I say this with great respect for the artist He is truly a master at what he does and I thank fate for making him a graphic artist What would these dark thoughts make in the mind of someone who doesn t have a pencil to drain them out

G a feeling of dread and claustrophobia and the stories herein all share an unmistakably and uncompromising commitment to exploring the crossroads of abomination and hilarityThe Furry Trap contains short stories varying in length from one to pages as well as a number of extras that will flesh out the reader s experience From the title creatures in Night of the Jibblers to the witches and ogres of Cockbone to the Godzilla sized centaur bodied depiction of the title character in Jesus Christ to the. Ugly Disturbing SickeningJosh Simmons The Furry Trap is marketed as horror but the short stories collected between its covers do not feel like your typical horror fare Sure they are chock full of horrific acts of violence but the thing is these acts of violence do not add up to any kind of entertaining or potentially cathartic spectacleInstead they are one thing and one thing only extremely disturbing They do not play by any rules of genre or taste In fact they appear to be little than the logical extension of the very real world we have created for ourselves a world shaped by greed selfishness short sightedness and exploitation not by holistic or even moral considerationsMuch like Michael Haneke s 1997 film Funny Games Simmons The Furry Trap holds a mirror up to a society that bent on self destruction treats violence as just another form of entertainment Like Funny Games it presents even the most extreme acts of violence in calm seemingly detached and uncaring fashion forcing the reader to rediscover their own moral agency and shout enough of this ugly sickening messMake no mistake The Furry Trap kicks you in the gut real hard It is the perfect antidote to torture porn as it will spoil anybody s appetite for fictional violence I highly recommend the book to fans of the darker radical as well as painful I m afraid kind of alternative comic but not to anybody else really Not even to horror fans
