  • A Child's Life And Other Stories


Long respected as one of the finest and most original of today's underground comics artists, Gloeckner shows both technical artistry and tremendous range-from her sly, lurid and brilliantly colored posters for rock groups to her textbook-quality medical illustrations, from her sharp naturalistic juxtapositions for THE ATROCITY EXHIBITION (J.G. Ballard) to the signature comics for which she is best known. This edition includes pages in both black and white and color, pages published before in obscure comic books, pages of her classics and new stories. In detailed, nuanced panels, these strips depict the isolation, horror and disappointment-but also the revolutionary, transformative power-of young women trapped in circumstances ringed with drugs and sexual abuse. Gloeckner continues as a major literary and visual artist. With an introduction by R. Crumb.
