Hyperthick - Collected Edition by Steve Aylett / 112-page paperback, 7 x 10 inches, published by Floating World / color printing / ISBN 9781942801139
With Aylett’s surreal satire at full blast, Hyperthick collects the 3-issue comic series that Alan Moore described as “a new dimension of poetic genius.”
Follow Benny the Hen, Su Pesto, Biloxi Blake and Fox Grave as they lurch from one fulfilling fiasco to another. Wall-to-wall trickster figures face off in a lateral drench of comedic honesty. What is the Memphis Conjecture? Are owls to blame? Where do characters go when they run out of bends to go around? Lucid dream or psychedelic stoicism? Ignite your chemistry and discover the heart of the spiral narrative. In Clownsurround! Plus bonus material.
“It’s astonishing – like being riot-hosed with language, ideas and imagery! Makes everything else feel like vague drifting aerosol…” –Grant Morrison
