A coffee-table art book of one of the most significant activist artists of our generation. Spanning three decades, Speechless will cover the career of artist Peter Kuper. From his co-founding days of World War 3 (the longest running magazine in 'zine history), to Rolling Stone's Comic Artist of the Year, to major magazine cover illustrator and beyond. This full-color, hardcover collection will include dozens of unpublished illustrations and wordless comics in the unique stencil style that gave his DC/Vertigo collection The System its powerhouse punch, and helped revamp the look and feel of the world renowned Spy vs. Spy (which Kuper has illustrated for Mad Magazine for the past three years). Speechless will also include essays and anecdotes on his experiences as a comic art expert in a landmark obscenity trial; step-by-step discussion of the process of illustrating covers for magazines like Time and the Village Voice; commentary on creating the very first comic strip to appear in the hallowed New York Times; and tales of harrowing travels spanning the globe. This ultimate collection of Kuper's art will leave any fan of the medium ... well, speechless!
