Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Roman Dirge created Lenore in 1992 for the San Diego alternative magazine Xenophobe. In 1997 he launched the Lenore comic in the US, which quickly became a publishing phenomenon. Currently Roman is working on new Lenore adventures, as well as new character Samurai Sloth. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.
Wer Tim Burton und "Nightmare before Chrsitmas" gemocht hat, wird Lenore sicher sofort in sein Herz schließen.
Der Zeichenstil Dirges ist skurill- bizarr und düster-schön. (Natürlich in schwarzweiß gehalten.)
Die Kurzgeschichten sind oftmals bitter bis heiter, für Fans schwarzem Humor und einer Portion Sarkasmus nur zu empfehlen.
Lenore, unsere Hauptfigur ist ein totes, 10 Jahre altes Mädchen, das zwar stets nur niedlich- gutes im Schilde führt aber dann doch mal aus Versehen eine kitty totknuddelt. Ungeheuer süß und doch ungewollt böse, das ist Lenore.
Wenn man genau hinsieht, erkennt man das hinter Dirges Geschichten doch mehr Wahrheit steckt, als uns lieb ist, denn ein ironischer Blick auf unsere Gesellschaft bleibt hier nicht aus.
Leider konnte meiner Meinung auch nicht die Story über den eher schlechten Zeichenstil hinwegtrösten. Würde mir für das Geld lieber ein schöneres Comic kaufen.

Lenore is a dead little girl who doesn't quite understand the living around her. She doesn't mean to do some of the things she does, she's just trying to find her niche. The humor in this book is dark, yet definitely not for the serious personality. But for those of you who can enjoy the lighter side of the dark, gothic subculture, this book will have you rolling on the floor laughing. Some highlights include:
"Babysitting," "It's magic," "Lenore's Scientific, don't even question it facts," "A walk in the city," "Little Miss Muffet," "Mr. Puffy," and "A New Toy."
So why did I give it only four stars? Because I found a couple of the strips to be a bit cheesy. The second installment, "Wedgies," is better in my opinion. However, you shouldn't read issues 5-8 without first picking up this book and reading 1-4. If you can enjoy vampires-turned dolls, things returning from the dead (Mr. Gosh is hilarious!), and a little girl's penchant for accidentally harming cute, small, fuzzy things (watch out for those hamsters!), then this comic is a must-have, as is "Wedgies!" I can't wait for the next four-issue book (9-12) to come out!
A lot of people compare seem to like comparing Johnny the Homicidal Maniac to Lenore. Yes both are based on sick twisted humor, but there are two very big differences that make both of them nice to have and not so similar as many think:
1. Characterization: Lenore isn't insane really. She seems quite sweet and soft spoken. She knows about her mistakes, but that's all they really are. Just her little mishaps. Johnny, on the other hand is much more troubled, and knows it. throughout his comic, searches for the reasons and the way out.
2. Plot: Lenore is great, but there isn't much story to it. Other than the series of cats Lenore brings home and kills, there aren't many ties that connect the stories to each other.
So anyway, if you need some dark laughs as well as something to make you say, "aw..." then Lenore is perfect. Cute, witty, sick... everyone must love Lenore. Even if there isn't much plot...
If your kid has decided to go all goth and loves to shop at Hot Topic (who doesn't?) don't be surprised if this ends up on their Christmas list... but if your son/daughter is a preteen/tweener (under 13) be sure to read through the books yourself and decide what is age appropriate for THEM. Some kids are more mature than others, and some kids under 13 probably shouldn't have these books quite yet.
Trust me, I'm no prude and I did buy them for *my* 12 year old, but you should know going into it that they are not aimed at children. With drugs and rape mentioned, you need to know what you're buying your kids.
That said, I enjoyed them and know my daughter will love them (she already has several Lenore t-shirts)... Sorry Roman, but I did have to rip out one page that was questionable for *my* kid ;)
The stories are simple and not that original but something about his dilivery and cute little Lenore with her big round eyes gives it a whole new spin and, even though you may say "ew" out loud, you know that in the deep dark corner in the back of your mind, you're finding this hillarious.
If you want something a bit dark and weird but still want to be entertained, give this one a try. You just might like it.
