As he fires a bullet into his own head, he is catapulted into a hallucinatory dream-scape of ghost ships and jungle snakes, his mental state capricious and memories all too vivid. What follows is confusing, terrifying at times, and always stunningly depicted by the artist-author's bold and unmistakable prints. Here's a tantalizing glimpse:

We've got both the French and English versions in store, as well as other work by Blexbolex, published by Cornelius and Nobrow. Come see for yourselves!
