Review

'Dark, terrifying and brilliant' - Simon Pegg '...epic, blood-soaked and brave' - BIZARRE, Book of the Month '100 Months takes all of Hicklenton's passion and his fire and his beautiful, dark, disturbing imagery and blasts it across these landscaped, fully painted, panel-less pages...100 Months is a beautifully brutal and blood-stained piece of wondrous poetry, illustrated by someone who was taken from us too soon, with far more to say than he was ever allowed in this life.' FORBIDDEN PLANET 'It is, as you'd expect, breathtaking. If you're a fan of Hicklenton's work, you'll maybe have an idea of what to expect, but he manages to surpass any expectations. There are images where Mara travels across a landscape of bones and twisted bodies that stop the reader in their racks... It is not comfortable reading. It's not supposed to be.' HI EX '100 MONTHS is a heartbreaking final vision: one man going head to head with death, and with Death, and with life. I felt lucky to be allowed to read it and fortunate that Johnny made it for us before he left. It lingers and it haunts, and, ultimately, affirms.' NEIL GAIMAN 'These are Johnny Hicklenton's final words - and what words! Along with his trademark brutal, visceral draughtsmanship 100 Months both sickens and intrigues with its blend of classical symbology and modern anxieties... the narrative hits each page like a hammer blow.' JUDGE DREDD Magazine '100 Months is a simply stunning work of the visual imagination, one which transcends the medium of the graphic novel to produce a genuine masterpiece for these end of days. Highly recommended.' BLACK STATIC 'It is his magnum opus - his wonderful fevered imagination let loose in a final orgiastic flourish of beautifully tortured barbaric images.' COMIC HEROES 'The artistry on display here is truly breathtaking. Almost disturbingly beautiful, it is often difficult to look at such macabre imagery knowing it came from the mind and imagination of a dying man.' Alternative Magazine Online 'Hicklenton has always been a master of the macabre, but the bleak and horrific imagery in this book are absolutely beautiful in their darkness, even for him. It really is a vision of Hell put onto paper and it's definitely a book you will go back to multiple times to pour over the imagery. A true work of disturbingly beautiful art by a man who leaves the world a little less interesting by his passing.' GEEK SYNDICATE '...an honest book, a passionate book and a disturbing book. It is illustrated using immense talent, great love and unforgiving anger; a book faced with a true deadline, literally, placed upon it.' CRIKEY! '...a monument to one man's Love, Hope and self-belief and to that most important trait - the refusal to compromise your art.' FORCES OF GEEK 'starkly beautiful and apocalyptic... recalling Goya at his darkest.' DOWNTHETUBES '...the crowning achievement of a brilliant career, a true graphic novel that engages ultimate themes of life, death and salvation' EDITION

5.0 out of 5 stars 100 months the beauty and the horror 19 Nov 2010
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I would just like to say what an extraordinary read this is. It is prophetic storytelling with an impact that will reduce you to tears, more then just a comic, it is a work of art. Drawn and written by a man staring down the road of his own impending death, he has left us with a vision of the future that serves as a stark warning to the whole of mankind.

This hard back edition has a high enough print quality to do the paradoxical images the justice they deserve. Revolting and beautiful in equal measure it takes a moment to look beyond the acts they depict.

100 months is dynamite.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100 stars 7 Feb 2011
By Sam Quixote TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
The story of a faceless androgynous figure wielding a sword, hacking their way through legions of monsters in order to slay the Pig God is a fascinating one. What you see is an artist facing his own mortality, his own illness, his own death and fighting it with his art. Anger and frustration manifest themselves on the page through some of the most metal paintings you've ever seen and are easily some of Johnny Hicklenton's best stuff. In the same way that Ed Norton's furious monologue to himself in the mirror in the film "25th Hour" which starts slowly and gradually grows into a maelstrom of anger against everything he perceives is wrong with the world, "100 Months" sees the protagonist set off on the journey to presumably Hell until eventually the words and images swirl and take in aspects of our own modern 21st century culture. I got the feeling the book was cathartic for Hicklenton as he worked through his own feelings of impending death as the book finishes in a beautiful way that I won't spoil for the reader.

Uncompromising, brutal, incredibly visceral and bare, "100 Months" walks the line between genres like horror and fantasy to acquire the tones of philosophy and spiritualism. I remember first seeing Hicklenton's artwork in Nemesis the Warlock from 2000AD when I was a 13 year old and it blew me away. He had a style that was instantly recognisable and completely unforgettable and I loved picking up a copy of 2000AD and finding a strip he'd drawn, especially if it was Dredd. It's always sad to see great artists go and Johnny Hicklenton was one of the great ones. It's wonderful though that before he chose to leave he left us one final masterpiece to treasure. A unique and mind blowing book. RIP Johnny.

5.0 out of 5 stars 100 Months by John Hicklenton 18 Sep 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I love graphic art books in general and 100 Months is no exception. This is John Hicklenton's final gift to us and it is a tour de force, uncompromising, gruesome yet beautiful at the same time. Dying yet un-encumbered by editorial pressures, JH delivers a final, bitter, resentful, pleading, cry; both to us, the world and to God for his circumstance. Delicately, expertly and beautifully rendered - his memorial and epitaph. If you enjoy good art and an outpouring of the heart and soul onto the page then you cannot overlook this marvel.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best graphic novel I've ever bought 1 Feb 2011
By artnut
Format:Hardcover
Now, first thing that can be said about 100 Months is that the artwork within can be quite shocking. Personally, I believe that this is a good thing, since John Hicklenton was a true master of horror, but was too often unable to bring his full talent to bear. This though is filled with pages covered in fantastic artwork from cover to cover, showing just how dedicated an artist Hicklenton was, striving to show the message of the novel on every page. The work is beautifully illustrated and coloured, and some pieces, be they black and white or full colour, cannot be ignored for the level of detail put into them. Even if you do find the artwork to be too graphic and visceral, and even I will admit that certain pages are quite brutal, you simply cannot deny what a powerful effect they have on you when you see them.
The artwork is only part of the majesty of this novel though - the story and implications behind it are almost as compelling, and undoubtedly more thought-provoking. It is filled with references to the decadence and corruption within modern culture, how their excesses lead to the death of more pure, earthly values, and an abiding theme is how we destroy and desecrate the planet we live on, and this is shown in the title, 100 Months, which is taken from a quote from Prince Charles about us only having 100 months before a climate disaster.
Anyone who loves graphic novels, especially ones with stirring artwork, or horror and fantasy will instantly love this book. If you're not, I strongly suggest you get it anyway

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book I've ever bought 6 Jan 2012
Format:Hardcover
I own few graphic novels but was instantly drawn to the cover when I spied this in my local bookshop. Read it twice there and then, paid for it and went home to pour over the pages for the next hour. I love the illustrations, every page deserves to be framed. The story too, concerning the end of days also appealed. Went to 'gosh' in London looking for more graphic novels of this quality but unfortunately nothing came close. Especially sad to learn Hicklenton had passed on, what a loss. Fanastic book and at this price total steal.
