Description

"Stunning.. . . Youthful angst is rarely portrayed as this terrifying." --LibraryJournalDennisCooper and Keith Mayerson's boundary-breaking graphicnovel Horror Hospital Unplugged is back in a long-awaited reissue.Crystallizing a primal period of creative experimentation for both Cooper, whose Frisk--era storytelling is at its finest, and Mayerson, whose gritty, unadorned visual style would later explode into color, HorrorHospital Unplugged is a vital piece of underground comics craft. The moody, kaleidoscopic, and sexually charged story of would-be rock star Trevor Machine, and his flirtations with love, fame, homosexual identity, and the disaffectionof youth, is a provocative immersion in world of ambition, confusion, anddebauchery--and an crucial glimpse at the early creative achievement of two culticons.

Back cover copy

Sexually confused and more than a little lost, Trevor Machine, teenage front man for up-and-coming indie rockers Horror Hospital, walks a rocky road toward fame and fortune. But making it to the top may mean gambling away every last trace of his integrity, and Trevor's soul hangs in the balance as he discovers the dark side of success.

A groundbreaking cult classic, adapted from Dennis Cooper's story "Horror Hospital" from the collection Wrong, Horror Hospital Unplugged is now available for the next generation of graphic novel readers. Keith Mayerson's eye-popping artwork and Dennis Cooper's brutal text combine for cutting satire. Horror Hospital Unplugged is a black comedy for the ages and a remarkable collaborative achievement.
