Parramus the city and oblivion – This graphic novel follows the existential odyssey of a political dissident. When he voluntarily loses his memory, he’s dubbed “Perramus” from the brand of his raincoat. During his absurdist travels, he teams up with the gruff Cannelloni; a foreign aviator dubbed “The Enemy” by despot Mr. Whitesnow, and the blind author “Borges” (based on the real-life literary figure), who comes to be a guide. This motley crew journeys to outlandish locales where they encounter a variety of eccentric characters ,including a director of trailers for films that will never exist, a guerilla fbeforce of circus folk, clowns, and puppeteers, a tin-pot dictator with a vast fortune built on an empire of excrement; and Ronald Reagan.
This highly anticipated collection is an act of resistance in and of itself, it was created while Argentina’s
military dictatorship was still in power.
Perramus is a cartooning tour de force, with a revolutionary message that remains vital to this day.
