“Art is anything you can get away with… destroy it all.” Welcome to where art history, madness, and expression meet in a Pollock-splatter of thrilling crime adventure!

When a mysterious change in the composition of a famous painting begins poisoning the minds of its spectators, Margot Breslin—director of the Bureau of Artistic Integrity—must pull famed “art detective” Arthur Brut out of a mental institution and back into the insanity that sent him there in the first place.

Author and artist interviews, and exclusive content reveals in comic media (Bleeding Cool, CBR, Comics Alliance, etc)

"What an incredibly cool, edgy, clever and engaging concept! Wonderfully written beautifully illustrated! The world Prince, Morazzo, and Lopes have created with The Electric Sublime had me hooked three pages in and I cannot WAIT to see where they take it. Wonderfully written and beautifully illustrated - it is now firmly at the top of my recommended reading list!" –Kevin Eastman, creator of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

"Taking the classic notion of madness and the artist into a deadly and surreal landscape, The Electric Sublime is a fascinating and imaginative twist of perception. A literal work of art." –Troy Little, creator of Angora Napkin and the graphic novel adaptation of Hunter S. Thompson's Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

"While this creative team's work can be called bold or even iconoclastic, the best word to describe The Electric Sublime is brilliant." –ComicWow!

"Its surreal story and manic characters make this an exciting read. In fact, dont even think about it. Just buy the comic, get a comfy seat, strap yourself in, let reality go and enjoy the ride to the Sublime." –Big Comic Page

"You will not ever see a work of art the same way again." -Outright Geekery
