Synopsis

7 Miles a Second is the amazing story of legendary artist David Wojnarowicz, written during the last years before his AIDS-related death in 1992 and drawn by James Romberger. The graphic novel portrays Wojnarowicz's childhood of prostitution and drugs on the streets of Manhatten, through his adulthood living with AIDS and his anger at the indifference of government and health agencies. Romberger and Van Cook's visuals give stunning life to Wojanrowicz's words, blending the gritty naturalism of Lower East Side street life with an incredible hallucinatory imagination.

About the Publisher

Fantagraphics Books

Fantagraphics Books

Fantagraphics Books has been a leading proponent of comics as a legitimate form of art and literature since it began publishing the critical trade magazine The Comics Journal in 1976. By the early 1980s, Fantagraphics found itself at the forefront of the burgeoning movement to establish comics as a medium as eloquent and expressive as the more established popular arts of film, literature, poetry, et al. Fantagraphics quickly established a reputation as an advocacy publisher that specialized in seeking out and publishing the kind of innovative work that traditional comics corporations who dealt almost exclusively in super-heroes and fantasy either didn?t know existed or wouldn?t touch: serious, dramatic, historical, journalistic, political, and satirical work by a new generation of alternative cartoonists as well as many artists who gained prominence as part of the seminal underground comix movement of the '60s. Fantagraphics has since gained an international reputation for its literate and audacious editorial standards and its exacting production values.
