Is that all there is? by Joost Swarte ( Book )
2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 163 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Under Swarte's own exacting supervision, Is That All There Is? will collect virtually all of his alternative comics work from 1972 to date, including the RAW magazine stories that brought him fame among American comics aficionados in the 1980s. Especially great pains will be taken to match Swarte's superb coloring, which includes stories executed in watercolor, comics printed in retro duotones, fiendishly clever use of Zip-a-Tone screens, and much more. (There's even a story about how to color comics art using those screens, with Makassar as the teacher.) Other noteworthy stories include Swarte's take on an episode from Hergé's early days, a Fats Domino story, a tribute to the legendary "Upside-Downs" strip, and a story titled simply "Modern Art.""--Publisher website
