About the Author:

James Romberger is a fine artist and cartoonist who lives in New York City with his son, Crosby, and his wife, Marguerite Van Cook.

Marguerite Van Cook was born in England and has several degrees. She's been a punk performer, ran the Ground Zero Gallery, directed a film and has written and colored comics for DC. She lives in New York City with her son, Crosby, and her husband and collaborator, James Romberger.

Review:

“A revelatory work of art... Romberger renders Wojnarowicz’s moments of delirium and violent frustration as well as interludes of tenderness and passionate attachment.”
- Art in America

“The rough and seedy style of Romberger’s illustrations provides a perfect foil for Wojnarowicz’s text. Seven Miles a Second veers between an almost unbearably gritty naturalism and the incendiary heat of surrealist hallucination.”
- The New Yorker

“A cult classic... both a celebration of the unlimited potential of the comic book form, and a perfect melding of inspiring, iconoclastic imaginations.”
- Jim Jarmusch

“Revolutionary.... a runaway, over-the-top circus... An excursion into areas few, if any, comics creators have tread.”
- Jim Steranko

“[7 Miles a Second] is punk as f**k, colored in the tones of every kind of acid, and filled with rage, against the indifference of people in general and the naked disgust those in power had for homosexuals dying of AIDS in the early 1990s, when to be diagnosed was to be given a death sentence. It is an immediate work, an attempt to communicate before death that did not win its race against time.”
- Brian Nicholson, Bookslut
