And BAM, there he is! As comics continues to question its own codes, Jean Leclercq just about crashes onto the contemporary scene, banging on a drum and armed with onomatopoeias. Leclercq, who never reads but “marks down words,” bombards us with panels, each more improbable than the last—an explosion that absconds with all narrative context. A voracious comics collector and compulsive Saturday-night artist, Leclercq takes his inspiration and runs, leaving a trail of images in his wake that brim with raw beauty. Let’s go! Crash! Bang!! Splash! Tumble into the chaotic, uproarious world of HUMPF!
