Bad IdeaA very graphic novel that will either make his name or wreck his career But even a smash can't save their world if Trip retreats into his mild mannered rut leaving Silas to grapple with betrayal and emotions he can't escape What will it take for this dynamic duo to discover that heroes never play it saf. 35 StarsOh this is ridiculous No not the book my indecision over it I'm so tornYep totally torn and not even straight down the middle This review is bound to be confusing because I am confusedThere are pieces of this book that I LOVED with all my heart hated just a bit admired and scoffed at and some of those feels fall into than one area which thus leaves ME discombobulated The first problem I encountered is that my ignorance of the comic book superhero world is a handicap References to Trick never watched it Jean Grey relative of Christian Patrick Warburton the baker and sayings like “things were getting a little NC 17” fly way over the top of my head Now considering my Comic book ignorance I found the fandom fascinating and when I understood the reference I really loved the clever braiding of superhero metaphors with the characterisation It's very smart and I appreciated that admired it even Then I really struggled with the choppy dialog which felt as if the MC’s are speaking in code or only voicing a single word of a sentence they hashed up in their minds and forgot to speak I hated this It’s like being constantly thrown out of story and having to pick yourself up again I can only think it must be intentional because it’s not constant and there are passages in this book that I LOVED they lit me up inside – so this messy formatting perplexes meThis book is also packed with some strange to me similes like “He almost shone with contentment the face of a farmer at an Impressionist picnic” – eh I’m not seeing this image and “She winked and the triple lashes made it look like spiders fucking” eh I can’t say I see this either Is this artistic flair that I’m bumbling over like a clumsy oversized toddler ProbablyI did of course LOVE some of the clever play on words like disasturbate” and “A dork able” Oh and sayings like “the little gaggle of faggles” Ha That really is a dork able And this one has to be my laugh out loud favourite “Sodomy powers activate”You know what else I LOVE about this book Silas Goolsby Didn’t think I would thought he’d be the typical one night stand player afraid to commit and blah blah blah But no Sigh las surprised me and I reckon I fell in love with him uite early on and didn’t realise it till I had tears in my eyes at about 75% It’s for reals – I love Sigh las AND his hairy He man posing pouch Now Trip Spector is another story; me and Trip don’t see eye to eye It’s a matter of subjective opinion here and to put it bluntly He’s not good enough for my Silas And he said this “what I really love is breaking a big guy open with my joint” Oh cringe TripI can’t recall who summed him up so perfectly Maybe Kurt this sounds like Kurt but here you go “Raised by aliens No social skills Weird job Coping mechanisms out the wazoo Bony pale thing with a huge doodad and too many insecurities”Uh huh he's All that PLUS Trip’s habitual secrecy his closeted anxiety over being well closeted is ridiculous because everyone knows he’s gay And the fact that he just fucks everything up and doesn’t have the balls to put it right grrr Trapped by fear of what Flying This is the real world mother fu dude WAKE UP Urgh no Trip and I are like Catwoman and err hand waving whatever villain doesn’t like CatwomanSo it is amazing that with my dislike of Trip that I STILL got to appreciate the intensity of the relationship and the sex Oh boy the sex HOT LOVED IT I’m smiling HUGE when I think of dexterous fingers and a particular porch scene blush Uh – hemmoving onI discovered a couple of very uotable sayings that made me stop and really think in fact there are a lot of uotables here Worrying is praying for something you don’t want”“We are a race of powerless control freaks That’s how mythology happens”You see I'm like a yo yo with my feels I hope you can understand why I am torn but overall I really liked it I think It’s fresh uniue and it has a voice that is both sensually and comically pun intended seductive I’m recommending it because what the hell does a South African ex pat know about Comic fandom anyways Oh and bravo on creating a new platform to promote Scratch and Horn Gate Mr Suede Very clever ;For an insider view and the inspiration behind this book check out this interview with Damon Suede

Bad Idea õ Secret streak of geek who yearns for unlikely rescues and a truly creative partnershipAgainst their better judgment they fall victim to chemistry and what starts as infatuation uickly grows tender and terrifying With Silas’s help Trip gambles his heart and his art on a rotten plan sketching out Scratch. Some books are sinful candy—decadent escapes leaving us high and searching for another confection Some novels are art richly painted with skill and care resonating with us for months or even years as we parse the wisdom they reveal Get ready to have dessert for dinner readers Damon Suede’s Bad Idea is bothBad Idea is the story of Trip Spector a comic book artist whose joy has been nearly extinguished by corporate culture but rediscovers his spark through Silas Goolsby special effect makeup artist and winking ray of sunshine to Trip’s Fortress of Dour Through a sometimes halting beautifully bumbling raw real relationship Silas gives Trip the greatest gift an artist can be given an ocean and an anchor a space to dream with a tether safety inside the dangerous waters of creativity Together Trip and Silas forge dreams build worlds and carve out a love for one another breathless for its grounding and its honesty The love story between Trip and Silas and the chance to watch the creation of art in real time is reason enough to read Bad Idea but Suede weaves depth and breadth into his sopho novel which rival the witchery of Terry Pratchett or Neil Gaiman Bad Idea is rich not only with world but truths some simple some so expansive they will take multiple re readings of the novel to fully grasp Every page is a uotable minefield sometimes for humor sometimes for wisdom often for bothBut also in the style of Pratchett and Gaiman Suede drizzles insight like delicately sweetened caramel sauce over out and out fun Comic conventions make up trailers Hollywood style premiers not one but two zombie runs—reading Bad idea is not a hem lift of curious curtains but a balls deep wallow in worlds few of us are allowed to experience and our vehicles of travel are uniue characters of the style only Suede can provide He openly credits their inspiration from friends and fans but the subtle skillful breath of Suede can be felt on each eyelash of his creationsAs an author myself for me the greatest gift of Bad Idea is in Suede’s unabashed and sometimes out and out naked examination of what it means to create to wrestle with not only the demons of doubt but the marrow chilling fear of failure that comes even when we know in our soul the reward is worth the risk Creating art is organic yes but real biology not some sanitized recap on Discovery Peeling open the bud of a project takes than work It takes soul magic power and sacrifice—all for a reveal which often occurs with no one to appreciate the bloom Sometimes those who see our creation barely note the color before they pluck the petals for their own purposes Art is pain and terror and death as much as it is beauty and light and Bad Idea does not shy from this reality At the same time like all romance novels it is the story of hope Truth and realism with a happy endingBad Idea is a novel about art told through art It is a romp a lark a joy a revelation It can be read with a carefree heart and enjoyed on its rich layered surface or it can be mined for its endless veins It can make you laugh It can make you cry It will make you think—and it will bring you joyAbove all else Bad Idea makes me proud I’m friends with the author but I would be proud of this book even if I had never so much as heard his name before I cracked this novel’s spine Bad Idea is a book about creativity and art and it makes me proud to be an artist Bad Idea gives me hope for my own work It makes my soul happy simply thinking about it and every re read is another decadent dip into one of the smartest romantic adventures readers will ever take Once you start this ride you won’t want to stop and as soon as you finish you’ll want nothing than to go back and read it again I suggest you strap yourself in right now read & download È eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Damon Suede

Damon Suede ✓ 3 summary Some mistakes are worth making Reclusive comic book artist Trip Spector spends his life doodling super suare straitlaced superheroes hiding from his fans and crushing on his unattainable boss until he meets the dork of his dreams Silas Goolsby is a rowdy FX makeup creator with a loveless love life and a. Amended to say that I'm upping my rating to 4 stars see below for whyThis book is wackadoodle It is geeky like comic books r us geeky and really endearing Rounding up to 4 stars because this book was super original and I throughly enjoyed itThis book is NOT like Hot Head Just throwing that out there It ties into Damon's other book that came out recently Horn Gate which silly old me didn't realize until like 34 of the way through the book Interestingly it is sort of a fictional story of how the characters of Horn Gate were created It made me want to go back and re read Horn Gate to see if I like it now This book is written in a frenetic almost manic fashion It seemed like it was busting with ideas and couldn't wait to get them all out on the page It reminded me a little of Damon himself full of life and energy I mean all of these things as a complement despite how it might sound It was a interesting engaging book that kept me reading until late last night My only issue with the writing style is that I sometimes had trouble figuring out who was talking I would think it was one character until three sentences later when I realized it was the opposite character talking It was odd I'm not sure why it kept happening to me So I figured out that this was a formatting issue on my galley copy I looked at the same book in PDF form and I found it was MUCH easier to follow the conversation Hence upping my rating to a solid 4 stars And I have never never read so many euphemisms for penis There must have been at least 15 or 20 Edu ma cate me Damon This book is lovely in that it explores characters that are a bit unconventional They are all extremely uirky even the supporting cast Each felt like they were based on actual people because they felt so uniue and real Out of the main characters I loved Silas most of all I loved his unabashed sexuality and his uniue take on things He was wonderful I liked Trip too but I had some trouble with his character at the conclusion of the story I left the book feeling anti Trip which actually knocked my rating down a bit at the end I'm really excited to move on with this series I'd say a job well done Mr SuedeAnd it is totally true what they say in this book a hot mensch is very hard to find Copy provided by the publisher in exchange for an honest review
