The world is on fire and bodies of children are accumulating in piles, so for now let’s have rough gnarly art you could flypost onto bus stops and the walls of police stations, or which questions basic human decency as a step towards insisting on peace, or blasts right through decency and emerges savagely transgressive and on fire. “Truth through subversion,” like Amos Vogel said. “A weapon that could be aimed at anything or anybody,” says Savage Pencil about his complete maniac character Mr Inferno, in a book on my list that practically has sighting crosshairs attached.
Also a reprint of a Batman story where artist Kelley Jones is in such improvisational mood that he spends a few panels dealing from Frank Miller’s deck, with delirious results.
