Maladies by Henriette Valium. $10. 144 pages, softcover, black and white. Published by Conundrum Press
Originally published as a zine in 1994, we can be very grateful to Conundrum for bringing this early work by the legendary Valium back into print. Valium is one of the artists we care the most about at Domino, as an example of someone using comics in a completely unique and passionate way. This early book, different from Valium's normal full on maximalist style, shows him exploring the topic of disease and the human body. Early, scratchy Valium = good stuff. Priced low so that you have no excuse but to get into it.
