Hidden Gems Sale spotlight: Henriette Valium
Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under sales specials 27 Jul 2008 11:00 PM

Every day in July we're spotlighting books from our month-long Hidden Gems Sale, wherein we're featuring some of our under-the-radar backlist titles and encouraging you to try them by offering them at a nice discount of 25% off!

Today's spotlight is on the artist known as Henriette Valium, who is also known as Montreal's "godfather of punk comics."

Primitive Cretin by Henriette Valium

Primitive Cretin

Disgusting! Awesome! Baffling! Astounding! Hilarious! These are just a few of the adjectives that describe the hypnotically weird stories and artwork of Quebec cartoonist Henriette Valium, seen previously in several issues (and on one memorable cover) of Zero Zero. Amazingly, this is the first mass-market solo Valium comic ever, so we pulled out all the stops with an Acme Novelty Library-sized deluxe package that showcases Valium's mind-bogglingly detailed pages. Primitive Cretin will have fans of Dave Cooper, Glenn Head, and Kim Deitch, among others, clamoring for more!

48-page black & white 8.5" x 13" comic book
