Normal Comix is anything but! WARNING — May be Hazardous to Your Mental Health!

NC#1_fcsmMECHANICSBURG, Pa. — Sunbury Press has released Sean Madden’s first issue in the “Normal Comix” series under the Verboten Books imprint.

ABOUT NORMAL COMIX:
FOR ADULTS ONLY!  Sean Madden brings to life a cast of very strange — and very sick characters in this first issue of what will be a long-running series for Verboten Books.

From Sean:

To kick-off this very 1st issue of Normal Comix, it’s important to tell you our philosophy of artistic expression. You see, many people would look at this comic and say, “What?!? Normal? This isn’t normal! This is sick!” People who’d say this are called, “conformists.” Conformists do what society tells them to do. They don’t think for themselves. This is VERY dangerous, and can lead to uniforms. It can also lead to organized religion. Religion and uniforms will eventually lead to WAR! So we take this seriously, and have decided to attack conformity through art. We do this as a sincere attempt to improve the planet. To have a mind, and to fearlessly (but wisely) use it is a beautiful thing. To have a mind and let others control it through shame and fear is indefensible.

Sean Madden's surreal paintings subject of new compilation by Verboten Books

Mechanicsburg, PA – Sunbury Press has released Sean Madden’s painting compilation “The Boy from Saturn: The Surreal Paintings of Sean Madden” under the Verboten Books imprint.

The Boy from Saturn

ABOUT THE BOOK:
Sean Madden is a special multi-faceted artist and thinker. It always amazed me how he is able to develop his creativity in so many areas, and in such intelligent ways. As an artist myself and a writer on the subject of art, I feel lucky to have written about him and his unusual vision. I am also happy to say I know him personally. Like many artists and musicians (and he is both) who venture into realms of darkness through their work, he has at times been misunderstood. He is one of the most compassionate and interesting creators I’ve met along the way. His work is laced with social commentary and realistic observations about life (and this is the very thing that makes him a real artist), but also leaves him open to misunderstanding. I understand and admire him. I am grateful for that, as are so many others. — Lana Gentry–artist and writer for various arts publications, including Catapult art magazine, December 2012

Beyond the Sun

ABOUT THE BOOK:
“In addition to the impeccable craftsmanship that Sean Madden brings to his artistry, his works tap into the deepest recesses of the human mind and soul. He reveals the demons that lurk in our darkest nightmares, and exposes archetypes of desire that usually dwell, hidden at the most animal recesses of our being. Sean’s work is sometimes hilarious, always skillful, and always thought provoking. I am thrilled to see a collection of Sean’s works come together in a single place such as this book offers. Just beware; if you investigate his work long enough, you just might find that it is beginning to reflect what is inside you…”  –Marcus Wise- Owner of the 464 and Blink Galleries in Buffalo, New York

“Sean Madden’s art is a bumper car ride through a psyche full of unexpected hits and rattles. It’s more than a crack to the skull. It’s art that challenges you in an electric ring of cold steel and maniacal charges. You’ll be bruised, broken and maimed visually – but you’ll also sort of like it”.  –Nicolas Caesar- Artist, Art Pimp Deluxe, and founder of Scary-art.com
