I Hate Dolphins
Englisch. Reykjavík, 2013.
Út er komið safn mis-hugljúfra myndasagna eftir listamanninn fjölhæfa Hugleik Dagsson. Safnrit þetta er á ensku en bækur Hugleiks hafa þegar komið út í yfir 10 löndum og tveimur heimsálfum.
Hann hefur ennfremur skrifað leikrit, séð um útvarpsþætti, gert vídjóverk og sinnt myndlist.
Efnistök í þessari nýjustu bók eru nokkuð kunnugleg aðdáendum Hugleiks; þar er meðal annars tæpt á áfengissýki, firringu, rassskellingum, sifjaspelli og almennu hatri – allt með hæfilegum skammti af notalegri kaldhæðni.
“This is simply offensive trash, so-called cartoons by someone with as much drawing talent as my dog, and strap-lines that are as offensive as they could possibly be – Have I made my point yet? I made the mistake of opening it to see what was inside, and immediately felt cheapened, soiled, even.
If it´s meant to be funny, it isn’t.
The writer-come-artist is utterly without talent and this should never have made it to print. It is vile, crude and disgusting, and those are just the good things I can think of to say about it. I don’t want it in my house, it’s going in the bin to be recycled into paper for a more deserving titile. Dagsson is apparently the most famous cartoonist in Iceland – god help them if that’s true!”
