Description

Revolutionary.... a runaway, over-the-top circus... An excursion into areas few, if any, comics creators have tread. Jim Steranko

The rough and seedy style of Romberger s illustrations provides a perfect foil for Wojnarowicz s text. Seven Miles a Second veers between an almost unbearably gritty naturalism and the incendiary heat of surrealist hallucination. The New Yorker

A revelatory work of art... Romberger renders Wojnarowicz s moments of delirium and violent frustration as well as interludes of tenderness and passionate attachment. Art in America

A cult classic... both a celebration of the unlimited potential of the comic book form, and a perfect melding of inspiring, iconoclastic imaginations. Jim Jarmusch
