Wuxtry! Wuxtry! An all new Frank Santoro comic book: the long rumored first installment of his meditation on the axes of art: artists and patrons; money, sex and power; subject and object; the eternal recurrence of archetypes; and, of course, comics and geometry. Santoro puts his money where his mouth is – so to speak – and has created an entire book based on "the spread" – the two pages that lay open before the reader and are simultaneously taken in as a compositional whole and scanned/read as a narrative text. This is a work that must be carefully and deliberately studied in order to extract the multiple layers of signification and meaning that are encoded within the art. The parallel positioning of people, places and objects within the respective grids of the left and right pages of each spread invites analogical synthesis on the part of the reader, and it is within this synthesis that the real drama unfolds. Do yourself a favor and check out the insightful review by Nicole Rudick on TCJ that delves into this and more. This 32 page, magazine size, two-color risograph is a signed and numbered edition of 300 copies published by PictureBox. These are now long gone, but don't despair, the complete graphic novel is now avalable HERE (along with a copacetic exclusive special offer)!
