Postcards from the Mess is a weekly poem-comic about and inspired by art/artists, music/musicians, performers/performances, etc. This week, it's about Max Morris.
Max Morris is a comics artists in a state of ecstatic fervor. He has risen again to remind us of our fallen punk oath. Additionally, he's an organizer for the Chicago Alternative Comics Expo (CAKE), and the editor of the Vacuum Horror anthology. This poem-comic was created in response to his performative comics reading at Brain Frame 17, which has been described by its host, Lyra Hill, as having a "propulsive energy and mounting tension." For me, it was akin to a frenzied religious experience, wherein I was swept up in Morris' good word. For more information on Max and his work please visit his website.
