(W) Josh Frank, Tim Heidecker (A) Manuela Pertega
Surrealist icon Salvador Dali and iconoclast comedians The Marx Brothers planned a never-made film that merged their sensibilities in a sublime mashup of absurdity, surrealism, slapstick, and wit. But the original screenplay was lost... until now. Rejected by MGM studios, the script was thought lost forever. But author Josh Frank found it, and with comedian and writer Tim Heidecker and Spanish artist and comics creator Manuela Pertega, he's recreated the film that Dali and the Marx Brothers would have made as a graphic novel that presents the story in all its full-color, fully cinematic, fully surreal glory. A remarkable plural marriage of art, absurdity, biography, and comedy, Giraffes on Horseback Salad is a cinematic, comedic, and literary experience like no other.
