Description

“Comics’ answer to Finnegan’s Wake, an inspired work of obsessive genius that will take a long time to untangle.” – Rob Salkowitz, Senior Contributor, FORBES “The Strange Death of Alex Raymond is one of the most spectacular comics I have ever read or seen. I can’t recommend it enough, although you may hate it. Bizarre and beautiful and completely unique.” – Jim Rugg, Cartoonist Kayfabe, Street Angel, The P.L.A.I.N. Janes “This is a master work. I’m honoured to have even laid eyes on it.” – E.S. Glenn, author of Unsmooth, cartoonist for The New Yorker “A must-read for anyone interested in the history and craft of comics” – Brandon Graham, King City, Warhead, Prophet “Grubaugh provides a brilliant and fitting conclusion to what would have otherwise been one of the most notable unfinished works of recent times. I for one am excited at holding the completed Strange Death of Alex Raymond in my hands.” – Gary Spencer Millidge, Strangehaven, Alan Moore: Portrait of an Extraordinary Gentleman Legendary creator Dave Sim is renowned world-wide for his groundbreaking Cerebus the Aardvark. Now, in The Strange Death of Alex Raymond, Sim brings to life the history of comics’ greatest creators, using their own techniques. Equal parts Understanding Comics and From Hell, Strange Death is a head-on collision of ink drawing and spiritual intrigue, pulp comics and movies, history and fiction. The story traces the lives and techniques of Alex Raymond (Flash Gordon, Rip Kirby), Stan Drake (Juliet Jones), Hal Foster (Prince Valiant), and more, dissecting their techniques through recreations of their artwork, and highlighting the metatextual resonances that bind them together. Foreword by Eddie Campbell. show more
