Subcultural Karate Turtles by Adam Green
Launched at Pioneer Works November 17 , Subcultural Karate Turtles is a satirical graphic novel by artist/musician Adam Green. Parodying the popular Ninja Turtles cartoon, Green reimagines the turtles as subcultural artists who must battle the mainstream to determine the future of art. Set in an intergalactic Kabuki theater, the book is a play inside of a comic book. Against the backdrop of childhood iconography, the psychedelic dialogue functions as a critique of cultural theory.
