A book abou. antastic butterflies? In all my years as a reader, I had never heard about James Kochalka. One day I ran into Fantastic Butterflies (Alternative Comics, 2002) in my local library. I quite liked the art of it but did not open it at that time. I saw it on other occasions, but I thought it was only a children’s book about, I don’t know, maybe I was being too literal, about fantastic butterflies. For many times, I left it unopened. It was the cover, picturing two girls cheering and jumping, that gave me the wrong idea

Fantastic Butterflies. Despite the book's random nature, the story moves quickly and gracefully. Publishers Weekly,Like much of Kochalka's work, this is a series of intertwined episodes that progresses linearly but without much plot. Readers follow Amy and Josh, pals and superheroes of sorts (the Fantastic Butterflies of the title), and Magic Boy, Amy's husband, who sports a Vulcan's pointy ears. Magic Boy warps himself a few hours into the future to the aforementioned softball game/party, while Amy and Josh bake a cake. Birdy takes New Guy to the hospital and professes her love for him, and the Fantastic Butterflies take Magic Boy dancing.

Magic Boy wanders drunkenly through a hallucinogenic nightmare world of Cancer Robots, softball showdowns, dance parties, barbecues, time machines, testicular injury, and cake-baking kung-fu cuties! The graphic novel has twists and turns so bizarre you’ll be shouting out “OH MY GOD!” and scaring your roommates. It also happens to be hilariously funny and infectious in its bubbly charm, combining autobiography with a kind of magic science-fiction.

Honestly, I haven't a clue what to say about this. It is very weird. I certainly enjoyed it but the whole time I'm like, "What am I reading?". It's not really a story but all the little episodes are connected so it makes sense. I'd recommend it, but not to anyone I know. LOL. If you're a little warped and like things such as: time warp telephones, talking dogs who used to be robots, cancer robots who come and get your cancer, a burst testicle preserved under the kitchen sink and girls who fight like manga ninjas calling out their moves (Gosh, I loved that part!) ... then this one's for you.
"Fantastic Butterflies" is James Kochalka's best graphic novel. He and his wife Amy (both drawn as elves) are the main characters who are preparing for a party. They visit their friend, an artist, who is dying of cancer and then set off for a night of fun. Along the way we meet Jason X-12 (drawn as a dog), Amy's friend Josh (pronounced Jawsrch and is female) as well as their other friends all drawn as animals or monsters. The world is similar to the one we live in except there are time machines you can use for a quarter and there are robots.

James' drawing style is deceptively simplistic and utterly compelling to look at. The story pings along nicely and it's overall message - celebrate life! - is charming and invigorating. It's a fantastic graphic novel for those who want to experience James Kochalka's work and who don't want to dip into the Sketchbook Diaries and his children's books (though those are excellent too). Great fun, highly recommended for comics fans.
Kissers, Tiny Bubbles, and Fantastic Butterflies - a great trio of books by James Kochalka!
