Gaylord Phoenix #5

January 21, 2011

One of our favorite zines of the last 5 years has got to be Gaylord Phoenix. It has been following the loose story of a mystical, sexual love journey with the birdman hero of the same name who runs around forests, meets bearded wizards that give him blowjobs, and has his noodlely genitalia removed on occasion. There’s lots of sex and violence in the best possible way (fantastical, bizarre) and body parts get dismembered simultaneously with gender lines and traditional comic narratives. Each page is a rad drawing, each spread an epic work that makes you turn the pages slow and take it all in as art. We had a great book release party for Edie a couple months ago and we just thought we’d tell ya that we now have his zines in our online shop.
