Mysterious maladies and dubious doctors.

The head sickness. The super swelling syndrome. The hallucinating hand. These are among the disturbing diseases readers will discover in Henriette Valium's Maladies. Perhaps more concerning, however, are the cures.

Absurd and grotesque, Maladies is a tour through an impossibly monstrous landscape of disease, with Valium at the wheel. It perfectly encapsulates Valium's longstanding fascination with the human body, as well as society's cultural quirks and taboos.

Maladies is a graphzine published in France in 1994, now available in English for the first time. Pairing blunt observations with surrealist line drawings, this offering by one of Quebec's most notorious underground comic artists will truly bend the mind.

Legendary underground cartoonist Henriette Valium has been active in the francophone comics scene for decades. His first book in English was The Palace of Champions from Conundrum Press.

The Palace of Champions is a eyeball expanding, mind-dripping explosion of color and line, surrealism, and sardonic humor. Excellent, and highly recommended.-John Porcellino
