an essential khronicle, katalogue and visual kornukopia of the work of the bitterkomix artists

bitterkomix is a south afrikan komikbook (slash art kollektive) founded by anton kannemeyer (aka joe dog) and konrad botes, aktive since the early 90’s - their work is graphik (in all senses) satirikal and sociopolitikal komment re life in south afrika - a similar art samizdat nature to bazooka produktions (and novi kolektivizem?) - sure to appeal to admirers of bruno richard (hello blakat and napalm! - i think few else partikularly kare about such graphix gods) - there’s a book or two kollekting their english komix (kinda diffikult to find now) but this is a big bad full kolor kollektion of ephemera and art: komikbook kovers, post kards, sketchbook skribblings, silkscreens, etc, plus kommentaries - most of the book kan be viewed here
