2011 marked the culmination of a decades-spanning career arc as Frank Santoro found his art at the center of the 2011 Pittsburgh Biennial at The Carnegie Museum of Art, where he attended studio art classes as a youth. We are excited to at last be able to offer for sale copies of his 16-page tabloid newspaper comics work that was the highlight of that exhibit.

(Book Six in the New Edition of the collected Love and Rockets) Wow!

"Poison River" originally cascaded through 12 issues of Love and Rockets (#29 - #40) over the course of close to fouryears (1989 - 1992), providing a portrait of Luba's mother, Maria – along with what could be construed as Luba's origin story– that does...
