Seven Miles a Second (1996) One-Shot
This is the gripping, true-life story of David Wojnarowicz, a controversial contemporary artist and writer who died of AIDS-related causes in 1992.
Written by Wojnarowicz before his death, Seven Miles a Second is an unflinching, angry, disturbing account of his life, from being a child prostitute in New York City's Times Square, to his devastating fatal illness. One of the most wrenching, emotionally powerful true stories ever told in comics, Seven Miles a Second is a thought-provoking must-read during a time when too many such stories go ignored. Art for this 64-page one-shot is supplied by James Romberger.
