Fundamentally bizarre. Illustrations are strong. Stories are dreamlike.

An allegorical story about religion, cults, Marxism, Anarchism, teenagers and self-actualization. Being allegorical, it does feel like I'm only getting half of the story, the other half coming studying these things. I understood a few things though.

Richard's Valley (religion) dominates the beginning of this story, until the animal outcasts were thrown out of their cult. The Snake formed Marxism while the Dog formed Anarchism. The only thing they shared in common was a resentment for Richard's Valley. Marxism is it's own cult, rooted in its own spiritual ties, but eventually took over for more political means (seeming to miss the point of what Marxism's original intent was, or that it's impossible to separate that intent for a new direction.) The Dog remained aimless with his merry band of animal friends, vagabonds searching for a home while the system they live under does not, cannot, provide one. Regardless, they're still happy to simply have each other and be free of the lotus-fruit which had originally illusion them, deceiving them to believe that Richard was any more an animal than them. Eventually Richard leaves the valley, publishing books about his teachings, but eventually finds himself sick from the pollution that the city introduces him. The Snake, Dog, and every else who was forced to leave are now allowed back into the valley.

I feel that I'm missing details, but that was all I could take away from it. This is a good book to re-read after some time has passed, perhaps a year later. Hehe, I can hardly wait, something so long-term makes me excited.

Lose #4 and #5 I absolutely LOVE (seriously, "Living Outdoors" reads like a better Crawl Space by Jesse Jacobs), but like what DeForge writes in his prologue, his earlier stuff isn't good.
