The Mythology Of S. Clay Wilson Vol.3: Belgian Lace From Hell

Patrick Rosenkranz

This third and final volume concludes this biography/collection/retrospective, and includes comics, fine art, commissions, and much more from the artist who taught Crumb how to unleash his id.

This book includes all of the cartoonist’s work from Zap Comix #12 through #15; stories published in the horror anthology Taboo; the three appearances of his outrageous, race-bending character Meadows from Weirdo; illustrations for Grimm and Andersen fairy tales; as well as book jackets and album covers. Plus, dozens of privately commissioned paintings, including the Seven Deadly Sins (Just Say Yes!) and inner landscapes peopled with pirates, ogres, leprechauns, Cyclops, the Baby Jesus, and his favorites players, Captain Pissgums, Star-Eyed Stella, and the Checkered Demon. It also includes an even score of remarkably rendered paintings, both unpublished and virtually unseen, that he created between the 2006 publication of The Art of S. Clay Wilson and The Night the Lights Went Out in 2008, when Wilson’s career spiraled out of control. Full-color illustrations throughout. Full-color illustrations throughout.
