“Forget about pens being mightier than swords. Roman Muradov’s pen is more like an exploding bomb. There is so much graphic innovation in this book that Muradov can hardly contain it in a panel. It’s exciting to see this much talent let loose on a piece of white paper. Beauty and chaos in perfect harmony.” — SETH, Author of Palookaville

Jacob Bladders, illustrator, braggart, and victim of assault by thugs sent by the mysterious Charlie. Part satire of commercial art, part noirish detective, part puzzle to be solved… or left in pieces. Roman Muradov’s forgotten 1948 classic is an ink-smeared Blakean vision of 1940s New York where twitter exists as a network of pneumatic tubes, but artwork is still delivered by hand.
