Optic Nerve #14 by Adrian Tomine (D&Q) $6.95 – Optic Nerve 14 brings Adrian Tomine’s multifaceted, expressive cartooning to a new peak with two stories and a bonus autobiographical strip. “Killing and Dying” is about a father’s struggles to be supportive: it centers on parenthood, mortality, and stand-up comedy. “Intruders” depicts a man obsessively trying to find his way back to a former life by revisiting places he once knew.
The Bloodiest Thing That Ever Happened In Front Of A Camera: Conservative Politics, ‘Porno Chic’ and Snuff by Stephen Milligen (HeadPress) $21.95 – In the early 1970s, outrageous claims were made of a new blood-spattered cinematic extreme. This was the legend of the ‘snuff movie’, which promoted the inhuman notion that a woman had been murdered to satisfy the sexual appetite of a jaded public. The story was produced by a kind of madness incarnate, but it reflected the desperation of America in cultural turmoil. ‘Snuff’ was a backlash against the naïve liberalism of the counterculture, embraced by people who preferred to believe the worst about their society. Once unleashed the concept was embraced and manipulated by the tabloid media and a variety of political and social crusaders, each using it to further their own cause. Brutal, evil, ghastly beyond belief, snuff became an iconic urban legend. This book is the true, startling and hideously exploitative history of that legend and how it was created.
