Hellraisers A Graphic Biography review ´ 109 Raise a glass to the story of four of the greatest actors and boozers of all time Richard Burton Richard Harris Peter O’Toole and Oliver Reed This inventive graphic work seamlessly weaves their four biogra For once the artwork was absolutely perfect for the subject With too many graphic novels I find this a sticking point JAKe s drawings are angular scuzzy thick lined black and white they suit the drunken and sometimes chaotic lives of the characters they give a sense of very strong personalities personalities from the past who started their screen careers in the black and white era and who are presented in the story as Christmas Carol style ghosts What has stayed with me about this book is an ambivalence about the way it treats its subjects It s easy to see why an author might want to present an alternative to the lionisation of notorious drunks and still make it kind of fun and laddish But there were a few too many instances when I felt like I was watching some paper euivalent of a public information film about the dangers of too much booze Dunno if Robert Sellers prose book on this crowd is similar There are screeds of internet writing already tearing down such former heroes And I can t stand the images and memories of the relatively recently deceased being used for causes they wouldn t necessarily have agreed with How many of Burton Harris O Toole and Reed would have wanted to come back as these ghosts of Christmas teaching a lesson to a thirtysomething dad who likes a bit too much to drink It s a little embarrassing in a teenage kinda way to fall in with the contemporary trend of liking memoirs but really I would much rather hear people in their own words I have a bias here due to a couple of favourite exes having been alcoholics crazy adventures absolutely violent never who simply gave up as they got older deciding on their own terms that it was getting in the way of what they wanted to do or was no longer fun and managing fine without AA etc Maybe that s not an alcoholic by some people s definitions but the during certainly looked like one My experience of people who do a lot of drugs and don t like drink is negative I d much rather be around someone who s hungover than with a person with Tuesday blues Perhaps experience means I m not as into the premise of the book as some might be but the principle of it means there is a sort of puritan hijacking nowhere near as bad as Leah Betts at least that sticks in the crawWhich then begs the uestion why the fuck I gave it 4 stars I really enjoyed the drawings the faces particularly are great and the anecdotes there are plenty between the bouts of occasional didacticism and the historical detail and the construction of the story It has a kind of fanfic element this guy gets to go on a night out with his heroes A lot of it was funny Plus time travel El agujero del infierno perfect for the subject With too many graphic
