Repulsive Attraction is a socio- and eco-critical collection of novels in a palette of toxic colors. A bastard of dystopian pantomime tales about the greedy mutants of capitalism, absurd and repulsive visions of the doomsday future, and the imminent collapse of society. No text, no speech balloons – only radioactive, psychedelic colors.
This release is cornucopia showcasing Patrick Steptoes quirky and surreal micro-cosmos and distinct style, characterized by a meticulous, underlying eye for detail and a deliberate playfulness in regard to the limitations of panels. Repulsive Attraction is a seminal debut that manages to move between neo impressionistic colors and formats, and black humor delivered through almost dadaist depictions of a self-destructive society.
Repulsive Attraction won the Ping prize for best debut in 2020 and was chosen as the best comic release of 2020 in the highly esteemed TV show Troldspejlet & Co.
The 2nd. edition is published with a brand new cover, new coloured edge cut and three new stories. To make the whole thing even more repulsive, we have increased the paper quality. We hope you enjoy it.
