The Micturating Angel
The Micturating Angel, Volumes 1-3
Seven years in the making, The Micturating Angel is a sexy, funny, and surreal collage art-comic series, containing around 3000 collages in total, including 27 incarnations of the Secret Chiefs (mysterious Overseers of the Cosmos). The Naked Lunch of comic books, every panel you see has been re-worked using hand-made collages. Unraveling the adventures and sanity levels of young girls against their captive, oppressive world, against crappy old men and their institutions, religious zealots, ignorance vs. science vs. freaks.
Source materials range from ’70s girls’ comics to hardware catalogs, religious and medical imagery, alchemical and furniture assembly instructions, “dirty” comics, mangas and giallos, cannibalistic self-reabsorptions, the Necronomicon, engineer’s manuals and mathematical formulas.
Playing with the conventions of comics to create striking visuals, adventures revealed through non-linear story-telling and complete nonsense dialogue, the scattings of a madman leading his visual orchestra, The Micturating Angel is a unique comic that will never be completely understood by anyone, thus remaining an enduring mystery.
Look beyond the confusion, don’t worry about trying to make sense of it, and revel in this ever-shifting series of nightmares, laid out like the storyboard of a Hollywood blockbuster that will never be made.
