Adam Green War and Paradise
Operating your consciousness can feel like playing a video game, and Adam Green would contend that it felt that way thousands of years before video games existed. In War and Paradise, the question of time and consciousness is central as the internet meets the Middle Ages. Green’s graphic novel is a comic farce spun out of control, out of time, and into an entirely new dimension of a Jodorowsky-like psychological survey through a lyrical interior landscape. As satire and absurdism conjoin to become the most logical response to our own wildly confusing and nonsensical world, War and Paradise cuts its sharp social commentary with laughter. Green’s insightful and imaginative prose will transport you to somewhere you’ve never been before.
