"Macanudo #2"was called"an indispensable work of comic art" by "Publishers Weekly."Volume #3 furtherbuilds and deepends this strip'scharming, surreal world."
Macanudo: Olga Rules (#4) is a supremely good compilation of strips from cartoonist Liniers. Full of surrealism and magic, this fourth volume of the great Macanudo introduces one of Liniers's most beloved characters--Olga. Olga is the imaginary friend of Martin, a young elementary school boy. Olga only ever says Olga, but Martin knows what she means. Together, they demonstrate the vitality of imagination and its inherently comic nature, relating the sublime and the ridiculous, as it always does. Olga and Martin also share numerous great strips with Henrietta, Liniers's bookish girl character, and her sidekicks Mandelbaum the teddy bear, Fellini the cat, the sensitive Robot, Olivero the Olive, and more. This is a standout volume that will set your heart singing. Don't miss Olga. Olga is coming. Olga rules! Liniers is a famous Argentine cartoonist who has done many covers for The New Yorker and has published some great books with TOON based on his Macanudo character, Henrietta.
