Hard Core Horror 4 — Entropy Going Down Slow.
'He nothing common did or mean, upon that memorable scene.'
- Andrew Marvell
In a series of stark full-page tableaux, Kris Guidio's most powerful work depicts Lord Horror playing radio host in the worst place on earth — Auschwitz. An almost wordless comic — as Wittgenstein said: "Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one must be silent".
Also includes text story by David Britton: Deadlung.
At last the Lung of England reaches the inevitable destination of all pathological ideologies, the door marked 'Genocide'. Prime pathos, terror and madness from Guidio, working here at the height of his mature style. There are no cats and mice scampering through these gas chambers — this is a story about real deaths.
"The scope of Britton's achievement bears justifiable comparison with Hans Jürgen Syberberg's magnum film opus, Hitler: A Film from Germany. There, too, there is an exacting cultural reclamation of theme and material previously considered intractable to creative expression." - COLIN DE SUINN, Speakeasy
"A base, sordid, corrupting evil that perverts our nation... It is a so-called 'comic' book of filth and degradation in the name of art." - SUNDAY SPORT
"A considerable achievement in graphic art." - BYRON ROGERS, The Sunday Telegraph
"The Lord Horror comics certainly go beyond the bounds of public decency. They should be banned." - TEDDY TAYLOR, Tory MP
"A rapacious alternate history of Lord Haw-Haw filled with violence and vitriol." - DOUGLAS E WINTER
"The artwork is dizzyingly forceful, standing head and shoulders above almost all other comics." - RUSS KICK, Psychotropedia
"Executed (by Kris Guidio) in a Beardsleyesque 'yellow' manner — showers of blood and offal mingling deliriously with art nouveau backgrounds; eroticism and elegance merging seamlessly with ultraviolence and sadism." - D M MITCHELL, Rapid Eye 2 (1995 edition)
