DennisCooper and Keith Mayerson's boundary-breaking graphicnovel Horror Hospital Unplugged is back in a long-awaited reissue.Crystallizing a primal period of creative experimentation for both Cooper, whose Frisk--era storytelling is at its finest, and Mayerson, whose gritty, unadorned visual style would later explode into color, HorrorHospital Unplugged is a vital piece of underground comics craft. The moody, kaleidoscopic, and sexually charged story of would-be rock star Trevor Machine, and his flirtations with love, fame, homosexual identity, and the disaffectionof youth, is a provocative immersion in world of ambition, confusion, anddebauchery--and an crucial glimpse at the early creative achievement of two culticons.
