To celebrate the one-year anniversary of 4CP, HiLobrow invited guest curators to assemble themed comic-book-detail galleries from 4CP’s collection. Click here to see all galleries.
CURATOR: ANNIE NOCENTI
I love monsters. When I was a kid I used to sneak peaks at my dad’s Monster medical textbook. Back then “monster” was a clinical term in physiology.
I have a special weakness for monsters that glimpse their own monstrosity, even if for just a moment…
… for monsters with a flicker of regret…
…for those that don’t know they’re monsters…
…for monstrous thoughts about to become deed…
…for the monster in all of us.
Years later, my dad claimed that he never had a monster book.
