New Arrivals: Comix from Floating World




Steve Aylett, Johnny Viable And His Terse Friends
Staplebound color comic book

"Steve Aylett’s rectangular bargain collects stories from Alan Moore’s ‘Dodgem Logic’ plus a bunch of new tales which emerge like an insect pulling out of its glue. Scratching from the other side of the world’s surface, Aylett collects dimensions like souvenirs. Don’t whack a piñata if you don’t want candy. This is not one of those comics you can read and still expect to live a normal, productive life.
Aylett is the author of THE CATERER comic plus several books including LINT, Slaughtermatic, Heart of the Original and Novahead. A series of administrative errors have resulted in him doing stand-up comedy and making music, art and a film. He resembles some sort of giant hen." -Floating World
“The most original and most consciousness-altering living writer in the English language, not to mention one of the funniest.” – Alan Moore
“The most original voice in the literary scene.” – Michael Moorcock
“Aylett crams more ideas into one sentence than you’ll find in all the novels on the New York Times bestseller list put together.” – Bookmunch
“The coolest writer alive today. ” – Starburst




Jonny Negron, Adapt, Part 2
 Broadsheet

"Jonny Negron’s ADAPT returns for another gorgeous issue!
Adapt, Part 2 of Jonny Negron’s sci-fi exploration of alienation in a utopian society. Our protagonist attempts to make his way back to the inner circle but now Earth feels like an alien world. Inspired by Return From The Stars, by Stanislaw Lem.
“Zeitgeist” – Matt Seneca discusses Krautrock – German music from the 70s that explored “rock music” divorced from its American blues origins. While American culture grew nostalgic in the 70s, European music and comics looked to the future and embraced the truly cosmic and psychedelic. The article is accompanied by illustrations of influential German musicians by Jonny Negron." -Floating World





Heather Benjamin, Delinquent
Broadsheet

"Delinquent collects 8 giant size works of exquisite gore and shocking beauty by Heather Benjamin. You won’t be able to look away from: unreal depictions of autoerotic torture; sensual suicide; eyeballs that leap from their sockets in ecstasy; masochistic blood soaked masturbation; a pussy with a tarantula in it." -Floating World
