Crumple: The Status of Knuckle



In stock



Another one of Dave Cooper's wonderfully surreal and dreamlike adventures in anxiety and desire.

"A satirical and at times shocking story of the fear and anxiety surrounding one man's lack of control over his own destiny in a world where women belong to a secret cult intent on the elimination of the male."

Dave Cooper's critically acclaimed comics have garnered multiple Harvey, Eisner and Ignatz Awards, and Cooper himself has won an award from New York's Society of Illustrators. These days Cooper spends most of his time making huge oil paintings for private collectors, and gallery shows in (primarily) Los Angeles and New York. He also creates kid's books under a pseudonym. He lives in Canada with his wife and two children.

"Whenever Dave Cooper publishes a new book, I would be surprised if 90 percent of the other artists working in the comics field aren't embarrassed and intimidated by his imagination, originality, and drawing ability." -- Geoff Darrow

"Dave Cooper is a talented, expressive, focused artist who has more brain synapses running than most. His technique and mastery of the medium is without question." -- The Journal of the Lincoln Heights Literary Society Authors and Editors

"Dave Cooper has finally staked his claim as one of the very best cartoonists working today." -- Peter Bagge
