Description
Elmer is a window into a world where chickens have suddenly acquired the intelligence and consciousness of humans, where they can now consider themselves a race no different than browns, black or whites. Recognizing themselves to be sentient, the inexplicably evolved chickens push to attain rights for themselves as the newest members of the human race.

Elmer tells the story of a family of chickens who lives and struggles to survive in a suddenly complicated and dangerous world.

" I find Gerry Alanguilanís Elmer one of my favorite comics. Itís just heart-breaking and funny and so beautifully drawn. "
Neil Gaiman

" If I can be allowed one chicken joke, this is the work of a mature talent that has come home to roost. Check it out if you get the chance."
Steven Grant

Sure, the premise is weird. In 1979, chickens become intelligent. The point isn't the strange world-changing event, but what happens next. It puts you off balance with its bizarreness before wowing you with a heartfelt and thoughtful story. Alanguilan's art is superb. The detail in many of these panels is amazing. He uses many different types and weights of line to shade, show texture, convey tone and even signal changes of scene. Very impressive.
