I just wanted so much more of his story in this. It's good, but it feels disparate, and if you've read anything by or about David Wojnarowicz, nothing in this will feel new or fresh. A lot of it is said elsewhere, fleshed out more elsewhere in his writings and in biographies. It's a wonderful collaboration to see and one I wanted to get my hands on for years (and I'm glad I finally did!). I was just expecting more somehow.

Just an amazing comic. Hands down. I wrote a whole post about it on my blog. The art work and the writing and the color and everything: astounding.

This is a truly magnificent rendering of a remarkable life.
James Romberger's drawings are unbelievably dynamic and Marguerite Van Cook's ravishing colors have never been more wonderfully reproduced. This book will break your heart with it's beauty.

Powerful illustration, nothing special on the text side... pretentiousness comes in many forms.

I have been reading more comics/graphic novels recently, and was starting to doubt my objectivity in judging them because I normally come from a fictional background. However, reading this, a graphic novel written by my favorite fiction/nonfiction author/artist and posthumously published, I am reassured that there is nothing wrong with my taste. It's just that it takes a true artist to make a comic or graphic novel that is splendid and not vapid. Great illustrations, I was so happy to see David brought back to life through them. And, of course, his words made me mad, sad and mesmerized with beauty.

DAVID Wojinarowicz,... I knew of him, in the 1970's at RENO SWEENEYS a boy my age. He's Defiant rage keep most people away. The manager always ate with him.That was how I met him.we were friendly not friends. Later living in the east village he was hanging his ART at LIMBO LOUNGE it's the 80s I lived next door. My 15yr old sister and I. DAVID was more talkative than.and may have wanted to be more known to the people he had seen over years 7MILES A SECOND is the cleaned up version. But since I found it buying comics on ST.marks. I read it in the PYRAMID CLUB Drinking with people. Some when to get a copy to keep...Some because they could never imagine him at the PYRAMID CLUB THIS WAY Even friends who have seen his ART. THERE ARE BETTER BOOKS THAT WILL GIVE YOU MORE FACTS, but this little book is worth having for graphics. The ART of his life.
Separating the artist who wrote the text from the art of this comic is interesting, so here goes...

David Wojnarowicz was a self-taught artist, boldly breaking ground in his explicit homo-erotic art, when he was diagnosed with AIDS in the early years of the disease. He died in 1992 of a death that was certainly painful and prolonged, as protease inhibitors had yet to reach the market and transform the disease from a death sentence to a terminal condition you could live with. In the last years of his life he directly challenged the religious right's crusade to shut down the National Endowment for the Arts, suing Don Wildmon for copyright infringement and misrepresentation. By the time of his death he had created a confrontational legacy that rivals the works of Tony Kushner and Larry Kramer. One of the last of his projects to be completed is this book, an autobiographical account of his life as a teen prostitute, AIDS patient, and artist.

The artwork herein is not fantastic, there are some notable panels but also some spots that David could have drawn better. That may be the problem, for such an intensely autobiographical work there is something missing because David did not illustrate it. Oh well, worth a read none the less.
