THOIA UPDATE / Plus: Cowboy Henk!

Due to recent personal horrors in the THOIA Kingdom, we'll be taking a somewhat short 'n sweet, yet much needed black sabbatical. But never fear, we do promise to return to the pre-coded tales of terror shortly. In the meantime, enjoy this hilariously disturbing sampling of Cowboy Henk adventures from the mind bending "King of Dental Floss" collection by Kamagurka and Herr Seele. Does this qualify as "horror?" We think so.

These are amazing. I am ashamed that I have never tried that remedy for mosquitoes in the bedroom.

. . .It's like a psychedelic Bushmiller!. . .

I'll let Gabe's brilliant comment stand as my own (as if I thought of it).

Enjoy or use well your black sabbatical.

These guys are Dutch, ja? Do they live in Amsterdam? Do they inhale burning herb? These are not from normal people.

Love it. This is the kind of surreal horror one encounters in bad dreams.

Hope the personal horrors weren't overly horrific. I think the dental floss one has happened to me.

Hi, I'm one of the makers. Thanks for posting our stuff. Another book will be out by the end of this year, in English/American.
We've been going for 30 years and funny that you mention but Bushmiller and Wolverton are personale favorites. Herr Seele, Ostende, Belgium

Mr. Seele, I have been trying to get your books for my store for YEARS. Who is publishing the new one?

Please email me directly at desertislandbrooklyn@gmail.com - I'd like to ask some more questions.

Thank you for stopping by Herr Seele, very honored to have you here, and I love your work! Please keep us informed on your new book release!

To answer Desert Island, the Cowboy Henk collection I have is called "King of Dental Floss" and was released in 1994 by Scissors Books.
