"All of life is struggle, of course, and Jon’s deftly rendered mutants are struggling up one heck of a storm. Struggling with each other, struggling with nature, struggling to get out of their own fucking skin. It leaves a hell of a mess, with all of your favorite bodily fluids competing as signifiers." - David E. Williams, www.davidewilliams.com
"Jon Allen never stops inking because,
the drumming never stops in America.
The drumming of death
The drumming of horror
The drumming of sex
The drumming of murder
The drumming of devils
The drumming of the drumming"

An album’s worth of David E. Williams’ secret collaborations with horifficist renaissance man Jon F. Allen.
Sexy synth und Sprechstimme to accompany any psychological emergency! Medical ones too. Expect some Liebestod und Lustmord. But mostly Lustmord. Plus a cover of “The Seinfeld Theme” that focuses on a very special episode.

“courageous dissents and outraged howls against the demoralizing suck of dominant America culture...really taut, cool stuff; not feeble-minded, PC hipster, stick figure, conceptual, poor man’s origami, foldy zine bullshit.”
--Bob Levin, The Comics Journal
