A disturbingly graphic zine of original comics, photocopied news clippings, and bizarre commentary related to murderer and body snatcher Edward Gein (who is said to have inspired the movie Psycho). Sloane co-founded a 1980s art movement called "Low Brow," which thumbed its nose at the high brow world of galleries and fine art. Slotane's work celebrates the dark, violent, and terrible in an attempt to show people "what is really going on" in the world, and wake them up from what he perceived to be a kidn of Norman Rockwell American Dream somnambuilsim. This copy is complete with the postcard on heavier card stock set into photo corners at rear endpaper. Only 1 copy in OCLC at time of posting. Very good. Item #3560
