An "Hommage" to Frank Zappa :)

"This book is an embodiement of the motto "one size fit

all", as it's a comic -strip panels, shape-shifting though

they may, almost manage to contain the whole world

whitin black frames constrained by the page's size but

unlimited by imagination.

The zappaesque cosmos is a universe that encourages

self-activity, which means invoking the skill of comic-

readers, literally critics and armchair (or sofa)

philosophers, who decipher, decode, mull over,

ponder,peruse, over-interpret and go to bed at night

happy that they have really looked at something, proud

of their ability to be fascinated, and then they dream

equally baroque connections and arcane associations of

their mentor."
