PULPHOPE, a monograph by Paul Pope, is officially released on June 25. I got hold of a PDF of the book a couple of months back. You need this book. It is Pure. It manages to be a complete statement and a work in progress all at once: a report from the borders of comics, Paul Pope’s view of the territory before he plunges on into the bush, hacking his way through the dark in pursuit of the new and the beautiful. It’s a million pages long and it’s going to take me years to understand it all. And that’s what I want from a book. And so do you. So buy it.
• BTW we are still collecting CARTOONISTS DOING THINGS photos…for a future extravaganza. And by the way “doing things” doesn’t mean “standing next to a celebrity.” Come on now, people.
