Elke gelijkenis met bestaande assholes berust op louter toeval

Een vroege ochtend op een golfbaan in Los Angeles. Twee beroemde tv-presentatoren, de Amerikaan en de Brit, treffen elkaar voor een ‘vriendelijke’ partij golf van 18 holes waarbij uiteindelijk alle remmen losgaan… Want achter de geperfectioneerde façades gaan heel wat kleine kantjes schuil. In deze baldadige graphic novel van de Belgische tekenaar Bram Algoed en de Amerikaanse scenarist Micah Stahl komen allerlei thema’s aan bod van narcisme en roem over seksisme tot eenzaamheid en (een gebrek aan) verantwoordelijkheidszin. Soms tragisch, soms ontzettend brutaal, maar altijd komisch. Een aanrader voor wie houdt van een eigenzinnige verhaal in een eigenzinnige tekenstijl.

  • Ryan - Sweet Red Reader

    It revolved a little too much around golf for my liking but I see how it could be a funny book for the golf playing cynics out there. 3 out of 5 wine glasses. ...

    Yes, these two are assholes. The competitiveness between them over their wealth, genitals, the misogynistic and racist comments, the drinking and driving ... I could go on and on about how the author ...

    I hated this.There was no storyline besides crude and vulgar "jokes".Didn't liked the art style or the characters.A total miss for me....

  • Lindsey  Domokur

    This one lives up to the name. Super crude, rude and UN PC, but also how I picture some of my husbands friends as they talk on the golf course. I don't read many graphic novels, but I needed a change ...
