Cult Fiction explores the reciprocal relationship between comics and art, foregrounding links between the two genres where current social and political issues are aired in frank visual narratives. 

The comics artists and graphic novelists represented in this volume are mainly from the generation of independent author-draughtsmen, whose subject matter tends to be offbeat and transgressive – and sometimes controversial.

An essay by Paul Gravett illuminates the long-standing love affair between fine art and comics, while Hayward Curator, Emma Mahony sets the contemporary context in her introductory essay. A specially commissioned picture-essay by Kim L. Pace, together with drawn self-portraits and questionnaires by the contributing artists, make this a unique publication.

Artists featured in this book are: Laylah Ali, Glen Baxter, Stéphane Blanquet, Daniel Clowes, Liz Craft, R. Crumb, Adam Dant, Julie Doucet, Debbie Drechsler, Marcel Dzama, Melinda Gebbie in collaboration with Alan Moore, Mark Kalesniko, Kerstin Kartscher, Killoffer, Kerry James Marshall, Chad McCail, Paul McDevitt, Travis Millard, Kim L Pace, Raymond Pettibon, Olivia Plender, Jon Pylypchuk, James Pyman, Joe Sacco, David Shrigley in collaboration with Yoshitomo Nara and Chris Shepherd, Posy Simmonds, Richard Slee and Carol Swain.

Foreword by Ralph Rugoff and Roger Malbert.
Essays by Paul Gravett and Emma Mahony.
