This extraordinary graphic-biography of rock superstar Jimi Hendrix comes packaged with a never-before-released, 30-minute CD of Hendrix's songs. More than 900 original illustrations and shifting narrative modes, layered with Jimi's own words, lyrics, and poetry, complete the set.
"Voodoo Child is one tribute worthy of the man's memory. A first-of-a-kind multimedia project...the work casts Hendrix's life in a brilliantly rendered light.... The art draws us into Jimi's life as Martin Green's tasteful text shuttles us through the story....Together, the book and [companion] disc [are] well worth the cover price."

"Resplendently fresh...Sienkiewicz...has provided an astounding series of... paintings. Green's imaginative narrative...adds an effective gloss. More than any previous Hendrix biography...Voodoo Child breathes life into its subject."

"In VOODOO CHILD, Bill Sienkiewicz has created a stunningly beautiful visual chronicle of Jimi's life and genius that stands alone among the many biographies of Hendrix. Terrific!"

Critics and fans have responded like crazy to the Ignatz Award winner's ubiquitous and instantly recognizable one-pagers in comics and magazines across the U.S., to his many wonderful comic books, and to his beautiful graphic novels.

The Birth Caul

On November 18th, 1995, his forty-second birthday, Alan Moore performed a lengthy autobiographical poem entitled The Birth Caul. The work was accompanied by music from David J. and Tim Perkins. Last spring saw the release of a graphic version of the poem, illustrated by Eddie Campbell. The comic and the disc go together nicely, a kind of darkly mutated version of those comic-book-and-record sets that were ubiquitous in the 1970's. Moore refers to the work as "a shamanism of childhood." I'm wary of new-agey terminology, and would prefer to characterize the piece as an honest stab at High Art. While in the world of comics, he stands out merely by virtue of his having an imagination, Moore himself has said that he would be considered a hack if subjected to the critical standards of any other medium. This attempt is a mixed bag, but Moore's still more talented than he gives himself credit for. Fans will recognize the dark, brooding poetry of Watchmen and Swamp Thing and the hidden landscapes of From Hell, but when torn away from any mythical icons or comic-book-campiness, his influences are much more visible. His vivid imagery of a damp, bleak English landscape is reminiscent of T.S. Eliot, and his stream-of-consciousness wordplay reminds one of William Burroughs. Moore's poetry doesn't really come anywhere near Eliot's, but he's actually a much better writer than Burroughs. He is still, however, more the consummate comic writer than he is a poet or performance artist. The work is much more compelling and visual in the graphic novel than it is on the CD. This may have something to do with Campbell, but I think it's more likely that Moore is just used to working in a medium that's half visual. Also, when placed in a comic, especially a superhero comic, Moore's dark poetry is striking and insightful, but by itself it often gets melodramatic and adolescent. This is too bad, because Moore's come up with some of the best turns of phrase I've heard/read in a long time. His study of the storybook banality of working-class English life is compelling and often breathtaking-but can also be pretentious and humorless. The work itself contains a certain gallows wit, but when Moore reads it, it unfortunately gets lost. Still, the disc and the comic both are both worth having, and worth enjoying separately from one another (I particularly recommend listening to the CD in a darkened room). The music is brilliant at times, with an especially haunting soundscape that recurs during the "Birth Caul" segments.

Label: Cleopatra
ASIN: B000001JUB
Alan Moore (WATCHMEN, FROM HELL, V FOR VENDETTA) cuts loose with this album-length spoken-word meditation/ritual encompassing Mystic London, the Kray twins, the magickal correspondences within the wedding of Charles & Diana, Jack the Ripper, and the entire freaking cosmos including Richard Nixon. It's an amazing, mind-bending piece of work, with haunting music and sound by Bauhaus's David J and friends. If you've read Moore's FROM HELL, you may remember the tour of mystic London that Gull takes with his cab driver; by the end of it, the driver is overcome as Gull reveals the grand mystical design underpinning London and tying together all its landmarks. This album is in the vein of that travelogue, with Moore as your holy-fool narrator.  Don't miss this gem!
