LOVE AND FORGIVENESS by Joe Hale

Edited by Marc Bell, with an interview between Bell and Hale, this is a raw, disturbing, and disturbingly funny collection of pre-cool kids comics.

“In the 1990s, “Joe Hale” (artist Joey Haley) drew and self-published two volumes of comics while living in Montreal. Some of these appeared in Vice Magazine and regularly in Fish Piss (edited by Louis Rastelli), where he picked up a small but devoted following. Disturbing in nature, these works often satirize the autobiographical position taken by many cartoonists of the day. But there was more to it than that: these short stories transcend their small “DIY” format, reading like classic morality tales gone wrong. Hale now works primarily as a drawer and painter, exhibiting internationally, and these stories show the roots of his dark humour and remain as intense and sublime as when they were first created.” 60 pages, 8.75″ x 11.75″, perfectbound. Color covers with b+w and color interiors. (Swimmer’s Group) FOR MATURE READERS
