Praised by Publishers Weekly as "one of his generation's most admired cartoonists," DeForge is the vanguard of a new wave of alternative cartoonists. DeForge was a storyboard artist and prop designer for the megahit Cartoon Network program Adventure Time. One can see hints of that show's house style filtered through the Lynchian landscapes and otherworldly vistas of DeForge's vision. Koyama Press' previous medleys of DeForge miscellany are two of our bestselling books and have received enormous critical acclaim. These often rare and hard to find comics are some of DeForge's best comics and no longer his best-kept secrets. DeForge's star has been continuously on the rise since his appearance on the comics scene with Lose #1 in 2009. He is a prolific artist who is constantly producing work whether it is in the form of self-published zines, online work, anthologies, jam comics, and more. Like Very Casual and Dressing before it, A Western World conveniently collects highlights of this work for the many rabid DeForge fans.

Recensioner i media

"Michael DeForge is one of the industry's most exciting cartoonists, largely because he puts out a huge amount of work that consistently pushes boundaries." - Oliver Sava, A.V. Club "Count DeForge among that class of literary trickster-Donald Barthelme or, heck, why not Kafka-whose bizarre, melancholic fancies map onto amorphous modern anxieties in ways that realist fiction could never imagine." - Sean Rogers, The Globe and Mail "Everything and everyone in his [DeForge's] drawings is dripping, bubbling and developing unsightly growths. He warps and dents the assured, geometrical forms of vintage newspaper strips and new wave-era graphics into oddly adorable horrors; his stories are prone to whiplash formal shifts." - Douglas Wolk, The New York Times "DeForge has been a darling of the comics community, and, while esoteric, this volume is a showcase of his sui generis talent." - Publishers Weekly "For converts, the appeal here may be in the details, the minor changes, in addition to what concerns of theirs they find reflected. For newer readers, the book makes a fine introduction to a cartoonist who expertly blends form and subject." - Greg Hunter, The Comics Journal "I suspect all but the most ardent and on-point DeForge fans, especially given the spotty availability and small print runs of much of his periodical output, there were probably about half the tales in this collection which I hadn't read before. So, even if you have some of this material already, the collection is still very much worth picking up." - JR, Page 45
