Rangda Comics?

Barelli en Nusa Penida

Western popular culture often depicts Bali in strangely distorted ways. Case in point, the kitschy 1952 film, “Road to Bali” with Bing Crosby, Bob Hope and Dorothy Lamour. Here’s another popularised version of Bali: the Belgian comic book, “Barelli en Nusa Penida” by early ligne claire master Bob de Moor. De Moor collaborated with Hergé (of Tintin fame), and here he does to Bali what Hergé did to Tibet. It’s a jolly romp with plenty of slinky sarongs and black magic, available from Todo Collection for a mere €7.00.
