E.A. Bethea uses painter, Francis Bacon—who a friend says she looks like—as a comparative anchor in this essay-poem minicomic. E.A. travels through time and media to explore issues of consumerism, sexuality, death, family, life, and relationships in late-stage capitalism.
Readers are invited to lean back as E.A’s wicked poetic skills lead them on a winding and seamless road of self, and societal introspection. Enjoy the evocative, humorous, and thoughtful ride!
