A Tale of Love, Art & Explosives
by John Linton Roberson
Graphic Novel

"Clever, cruel, and intense."
    --Katherine Keller, Sequential Tart.

Vitriol, a Tale of Love, Art & Explosives by John Linton Roberson
John Linton Roberson's acclaimed graphic black comedy, chapters 1-9 (of 12) originally serialized in PLASTIC
1-8, from Bottomless Studio.

The further adventures of Rick Krassner, gloriously failed writer, also appearing in Suspension of Disbelief (1989)

The story hits the ground running Lilith Lamprey, Rick's girlfriend, leaves him during sex on his birthday for another woman, and that's just the beginning. Who's killing everyone who causes Rick harm? Why is the beautiful, mysterious, and insane Sally suddenly in love with him? Why does she think she's the daughter of Gary Gilmore? And what did Lilith do with Rick's 26 unseen works?

All that and explosions too in the mad comedy of which Katherine Keller of Sequential Tart said:

"Roberson knows the brilliant and hateful things that two people who know each other really well will do and say to each other. The scenes in this issue between Rick and Lilith reminded me somewhat of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf -- they were that clever, cruel, and intense."

Now complete! Have a look.
