“Arias-Misson’s writing is comedic and sharp, clever and intelligent.”—American Book Review
“Given the stature and history of this engigmatic, creative polymath, it is unlikely that he would turn out a straight-forward, commercially viable novel; he has spent several decades making innovations in art, poetry, performance and experimental fiction.” –Evergreen Review
Alain Arias-Misson’s COMIC BOOK barges into the bookcase
like a superhero on steroids. On the surface it’s a simple Boy (“Company” operative) chases Girl (gorgeous Corporate Terrorist) story. Set “physically” in comic book format, it leaps relentlessly from one discontinuous window to the next, and becomes labyrinthic and baffling as the characters—discovering their comic book constraints—attempt to throw off these mental shackles and achieve their erotic ends.
Prepare to have your preconceived thought balloons punctured by this mind-blowing novel.
COMIC BOOK is a gas.
