Vivisectionary

/ vi-və-sek-shə-ner-ē /

A series of visual sequential experiments in the physiological, the pathological, and the occult. A bizarre and mesmerizing investigation through the marvels of biology and myth to uncover the extraordinary in the ordinary, the magic in science, the sublime in the grotesque.

Press Highlights:

"A delightfully disgusting compendium of the grotesque. Lacour’s work engenders horror of the deepest sort, and it lingers in the mind for hours." — Publishers Weekly

"Vivisectionary is horrible—and that's a compliment. If you're comfortable with discomfort, and you like your graphic novels to experiment with the DNA of the comics form, then Kate Lacour is your deranged doctor." — PopMatters

"Gorgeous, grotesque, and wonderful." — BoingBoing
