Sexually confused and more than a little lost, Trevor Machine, teenage front man for up-and-coming indie rockers Horror Hospital, walks a rocky road toward fame and fortune. But making it to the top may mean gambling away every last trace of his integrity, and Trevor's soul hangs in the balance as he discovers the dark side of success.
A groundbreaking cult classic, adapted from Dennis Cooper's story "Horror Hospital" from the collection Wrong, Horror Hospital Unplugged is now available for the next generation of graphic novel readers. Keith Mayerson's eye-popping artwork and Dennis Cooper's brutal text combine for cutting satire. Horror Hospital Unplugged is a black comedy for the ages and a remarkable collaborative achievement.
About the Author
THE WEAKLINGS (XL) is Dennis Cooper's first full-length collection of poetry in almost two decades. Although best known nowadays as the author of nine celebrated and controversial novels, including the five novel sequence The George Miles Cycle (1998-2000), The Sluts (2004), and, most recently, The Marbled Swarm (2011), Cooper came to prominence as a poet in the early 1980s. His first collection, Idols (1979), is considered a classic of gay literature, and his second, Tenderness of the Wolves (1981), was nominated for The Los Angeles Times Book Prize. His most recent collection was The Dream Police: Selected Poems 1969-1993 (1994). Cooper's poems have been widely anthologized, including in Post-Modern American Poetry: A Norton Anthology, and were featured in the PBS series The United States of Poetry.
Keith Mayerson's art appears in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, the San Francisco Museum of Art, the Cleveland Museum of Art, and galleries and museums around the world.
