Ant Colony


The debut graphic novel from a dazzling newcomer with a singular, idiosyncratic style

In the few short years since he began his pamphlet-size comic book series Lose, Michael DeForge has announced himself as an important new voice in alternative comics. His brash, confident, undulating artwork sent a shock wave through the comics world for its unique, fully formed aesthetic.

In the few short years since he began his pamphlet-size comic book series Lose, Michael DeForge has announced himself as an important new voice in alternative comics. His brash, confident, undulating artwork sent a shock wave through the comics world for its unique, fully formed aesthetic.
     From its opening pages, Ant Colony immerses the reader in a world that is darkly existential, with false prophets, unjust wars, and corrupt police officers, as it follows the denizens of a black ant colony under attack from the nearby red ants. On the surface, it’s the story of this war, the destruction of a civilization, and the ants’ all too familiar desire to rebuild. Underneath, though, Ant Colony plumbs the deepest human concerns—loneliness, faith, love, apathy, and more. All of this is done with humor and sensitivity, exposing a world where spiders can wreak unimaginable amounts of havoc with a single gnash of their jaws.
     DeForge’s striking visual sensibility—stark lines, dramatic color choices, and brilliant use of page and panel space—stands out in this volume.

BEST OF THE YEAR NODS FROM THE GLOBE & MAIL, AMAZON.COM, QUILL & QUIRE!
“The Toronto cartoonist’s first full-length graphic novel follows a clutch of misfit ants, trying to maintain some semblance of civilization in the shadow of war. Psychedelically gorgeous, uncomfortably funny.”—Sean Rogers, Globe & Mail Best Books of 2014

    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 immune to this kind of shit, but i still think this is gross:

     photo DSC04850_zps558f1e60.jpg

    gross.

    and i didn’t really respond to the artwork the way i thought i would. still – i enjoyed many of the individual story-threads that make up this book as a whole, and even though i think it ended a little abruptly, what do i know?? NOTHING!! I KNOW NOTHING!!!

    if you like ant-on-ant action, whether it be humping or warfare, maybe this is the book for you!

    and enjoy the giant ant-vagina, you freak!!!

    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?

    it was ok

    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.

    This was my first Mi

    This was my first Michael DeForge comic and, having now finished it, I’m not encouraged to rush back for more. Ant Colony has an interesting look to the art – it’s very colourful, the creatures are designed weirdly, with a dog face for a spider, and a cheerful limo-look to the centipede, and the ants all look like anything but ants – but DeForge’s various rambling plotlines don’t really go anywhere.

    The kid with the earthworm story is a lot like the Itchy & Scratchy parody of Disney’s The Sorcerer’s Apprentice where Scratchy chops up Itchy so many times Itchy becomes a vapour which Scratchy inhales and dies. A similar thing happens when the kid blends the earthworm and inhales it because earthworms in this world can’t die. Then the kid becomes a prophet or something to the bees and… that’s it. Wha…?

    The ants fight the red ants because… that’s what they do. And that’s what humans do, fight each other, and that’s the point, isn’t what we do all so silly, etc. The gay couple fight and break up and so what. DeForge’s point seems to be life is stupid and pointless and the ants are the humans, etc. We’ve all read books with a similar nihilistic outlook so I’m not sure what makes DeForge’s one any better especially as he doesn’t provide any original insight. I didn’t crack a smile but maybe some people found this hilarious because they’re… ants?

    I tried reading this 6 months ago and gave up because I was so bored. I forced myself through the whole thing this time around and, yup, boring again. DeForge is a very poor storyteller whose book feels as pointless to read as the ants’ lives. The unique character designs are imaginative but the writing is immensely tedious.
