Praise for Roman Muradov:

 

“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

 

About Jacob Bladders and the State of the Art:

 

Jacob Bladders: illustrator, braggart, and victim of assault by thugs sent by the mysterious Charlie. Part satire of commercial art, part noirish detective story, part puzzle to be solved or left in pieces. Roman Muradov's latest 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.

The first graphic novel by rising star Roman Muradov explores the theme of innocence by treating it as a tangible object--something that can be used, lost, mistreated. Roman Muradov's crisp delicate style conjures a world of strange bookstores and absurd conspiracies.
