Fred the Clown

Fred the Clown

"The Iron Duchess"

Comic Book - 2017
Rate this:
This nearly wordless romp from master cartoonist Roger Langridge is the author's paean to the silent, heartbreaking slapstick comedies or the teens and '20s, spun for a contemporary audience, starring his most popular character. It finds our hero Fred pitching the woo to a lovely equestrian. But with matrimony-minded fathers, boorish beaus, and malicious mad scientists interfering at every opportunity, what's a clown-- and his faithful pig companion-- to do? Langridge's velvety grays evoke the silent films of his patron saint, Buster Keaton (and, in this volume particularly, the latter's masterpiece, The General).
