i don’t know why i didn’t love this book. i should have – it’s about ants and war and the despair of the overlooked:
and the big questions; the things that divide us, the impossibility of communication
but also gruesome horrible death
and these kind of richard scarry-gone-bad overview shots like rarrrrrrrrr
and pretty endpapers:
which are all good things!
but then there are these other things that just kind of grossed me out. yes, i KNOW i read monsterporn and i should be totally i
it was amazing
Goodness gracious! What was that?? And why do I feel so weird?!? If David Lynch ever directed a movie for Disney, I guess the result would be the movie equivalent of this comic book: cute, candy-colored, beautiful, mysterious, surreal, enigmatic, fearless, subversive, dark, obsessive, merciless, disturbing, brutal, deranged, and more than a little painful. An artfully delivered punch in the gut – what more could you ask for?
Ant Colony is a subversive look at Western society through the prism of anthropomorphised ants. A couple of gay ants have relationship troubles; everyone’s bothered by the repetitive drudgery of their work and the seeming pointlessness of keeping their Queen happy; a father gives bad advice to his son regarding an earthworm leading to his son becoming a prophet(!); there’s an ant-hunt to catch a serial-killing spider; and war with the red ants, a neighbouring colony, begins.
