One of the great things about being a reviewer for FANGORIA
is when totally unknown stuff ends up in your lap. The good stuff ends up a
permanent part of your collection, the not-so-good stuff ends up being gifted
to friends on their birthdays. The great stuff ends up on its own shelf and
becomes the anchor for future searches. John Dimes’ stuff ends up in the latter
Some of you on the East Coast might recognize Dimes from his
stint as Dr. Sarcofiguy, a hip and hilarious monster movie host. His irreverent
style is unique and his shows are highly entertaining. It wasn’t until later
that I discovered he was just as funny as a writer and artist. When a copy of
THE WHITE CORPSE HUSTLE from Mr. Dimes arrived in my mailbox, I set it aside
for a few weeks while I reviewed some serious dreck. A few weeks later, on a
rainy Saturday, I fished out the book and proceeded to laugh my ass off.
Despite its occasional typos and grammatical errors, I found it to be a

So it was with great anticipation that I received a copy of
Dimes’ latest effort, GURLIMANN’S BIZARRE BAZAAR. I wasn’t disappointed. Dimes
is the author and illustrator of this graphic effort, a series of disjointed
stories featuring a gender-bending heroine that mixes humor with horror to
create a strange and surreal world.
Dimes is a major talent—funny in person, word and image, as
well as a musician—and it’s only a matter of time before one of the majors
snaps this guy up. Better start your collection now; if your local comic store
doesn’t have the book, order it here.
