Before there was their breakout phenomenon Ice Cream Man—there was Art Brut! Prince and Morazzo's graphic novel together—re-lettered, remastered, and under its original intended name.

The world of fine art is falling apart, and only Art Brut knows how to fix it. Alongside the Bureau of Artistic Integrity, Arthur Brut the Mad Dreampainter (and his trusty sidekick, Manny the Mannequin) must dive back into the very paintings that made him insane...or reality itself might just crumble to pieces.

A colorful, gonzo romp through art and art history, Art Brut is equal parts police procedural, hyper-fantasy, and psychological thriller--a veritable Pollock-splatter of comics genres tossed onto one giant pulpy canvas! Each chapter features new cover art, new design, and a new Silver Age-style backup story featuring the art hero that no one's ever heard of--until now! Originally published under the title The Electric Sublime, this special hardcover edition presents the NPR-lauded, critically acclaimed material in its intended form. Collects Art Brut #1-4.

“A fantastically imaginative take on 60s adventure comics, but with their own special twist set in the weird world of art galleries.” —Monkeys Fighting Robots
