    1 thought on “The Puma Blues: The Complete Saga in One Volume

    1. Sitting in my comic book collection under four feet of dust is an autographed copy of "Watch That Man," the first volume of Puma Blues. Elsewhere in the house are a handful of other, loose issues. Until "Finder" came out, it was, by miles, the best comic book I ever read, and I would eagerly shove copies before the noses of everyone within spit distance: "YOU MUST READ THIS REVELATORY TEXT."I arrived at it the way most of its readers did - hopscotching through various indie comix in the rummage [...]

    2. Very satisfying to read the new, completed edition of this gorgeously illustrated, out-of-left-field comic series that haunted and perplexed me as a teenager. Environmental catastrophe, metaphysical speculations, nuclear terrorism, mutated flying manta rays. Ah, youth.

    3. Wasn't sure what to expect, and I'm still not 100% sure what I think, but I know I enjoyed the hell out of this hefty saga. A bit of a 1980s time machine but (sadly) the themes of environmental and social breakdown are just as relevant now as they were then. The art is amazing (especially the flying manta rays!) and the delicate play between the shifting and turning narrative and the art gives the book the tension that it needs to keep moving the reader along. A post-disaster future / past / pre [...]

    4. I stumbled on this bound collection looking for graphic novels not centered around superheroes. Luckily someone else more in the know recommended The Puma Blues. It is one of those works that shows how often neglected the potential for comics to show a vast range of thematic and stylistic elements. The Puma Blues is, in other words, a comic that can only exist as a comic. Any attempt to translate it into another medium would diminish its power. I couldn't recommend it more.

    5. The main thing you need to know about this book is that I am mentioned in the acknowledgments. BECAUSE I AM AWESOME.

    6. The Puma Blues is one of those comics that I always meant to read, but never got around to. I remember positive buzz back when it first started coming out, and the fact that it's one of very few non-Cerebus titles published by Dave Sim's Aardvark-Vanaheim deserves some recognition. In the end, though, it's not quite my cup of tea.It's a difficult series to sum up. It's set in the future, or at least what was then the future back when it was published. It's set in 1997, but was written back in 19 [...]

    7. This book is a combination of a morality play and a future ecological mythography. Even though the specific details in this imagining are not always correct (and how could they be given the nature of chaotic systems), the over-arching theme of environmental degradation is happening before our eyes, and it's depiction here is heartbreaking. Zulli's nature artwork is gorgeous, particularly the depiction of the various animals, although I find his humans to be kind of grotesque. That might be delib [...]

    8. an indescribably beautifull book. Rob Bateman has got nothing on Mike Zulli when it comes to animals and nature. fluid and full of life, meticulously detailed and simply transcendente story itself, which can't be divorced from the visuals is insightful and introspective, ambitious and experimental. it is at times transcendent and poetic but the narrative and purpose sometimes get choked by its own metaphoric acid rain and environmental doom.wonderful layers of ideas, and concepts as relates to t [...]

    9. The art and paneling are really well done (in an 80s comics style, I guess, for most of it). The story meanders into stream of consciousness philosophy/political musings/rants, and tries to retcon itself in the last addition, which doesn't feel right. Glad I read it for a lot of reasons, the main one being FLYING MANTAS

    10. 1. Read this.2. I pulled something in my back, lying on my stomach and moving this huge volume from my nigghstand to my bed.3. The 4-page Alan Moore contribution is now in my top 10 Moore stories ever.4. Take your time.

    11. This book wast bad, but it doesn't hold up well. When I first read much of what's in this collection, I was much younger, as were its creators. This is the very first work by Michael Zullli, who would later go on to create far better works (frequently in collaboration with Neil Gaiman). The biggest problem with Puma Blues is that the characters rarely do much of anything but mope around, pontificate, and then stare at some gorgeous scenery. The timeline jumps around, and when you factor in the c [...]

    12. So far Puma Blues is not at all what I expected. Both the images and the text give you philosophical questions you could ponder for literally decades. When I began reading this book I thought, this will be a longer but manageable read, now I’m thinking it will be an incredibly long read that I will eventually have to purchase because I will want to return to these pages and re-experience the thoughts and ideas many times over throughout course of my life. This is a story that changes as your p [...]

    13. Michael Zulli's art is the best part of this collection. Stephen Murphy's writing is worth your time, too, but ultimately fails to properly negotiate the line between orderly exposition and freeform abstraction. Alan Moore's short piece at the end is delightfully weird and worth noting for fans of his work. While Puma Blues doesn't ascend the heights Moore and Neil Gaiman later established for the medium, it occupies an essential place in comics history.

    14. There is some fantastic, beautiful art here, some imaginative storytelling, and some deeply personal reflections on family and paranoia. Unfortunately, there isn't really a story holding all of that together.

    15. WOW! One of the most literary dense books that I have ever read. The story is fantastic, and the nature artwork is fantastic. Go on your own journey and read this book
