When two simple hobos-a pigeon and his elephant buddy-are
wrongfully accused of murdering Mr. Mouse Mouser, the consequences
are dire. Secretimes delineates an alternate universe-a world that
fa- vors the rich and grinds the poor and unfortunate into paste.
Each page is a brightly colored nightmare populated with vapid
celebrities and lazily scheming businessmen. Keith Jones creates a
pop parable that is stunning and alluring to look at and hellish to
live in. Graffiti- covered walls, melting neon figures,
idiosyncratic sound effects, and anthropomorphized bros meld
together in this satire of modern life and mod- ern values. His
sense of humor is manic, snick- ering, and surreal, each line
imbued with a rich sense of irony. Jones's pacing gives each page a
frenzied paranoia that belies his charcters' fantasies of utter
control. Secretimes is darkly funy in Jones's irresistibly
offkilter signature style.
