WHAT IS THE FILTH ?

 
'Visit the centre of the earth
 There you will find the global fire
 Rectify it of all dirt
 Drive it out with love and ire...’


 sang Benedictus Figula

  
the filth is Gerry Anderson for paranoid schizophrenics; a fluorescent day-glo trip through an Abyss of  internet porn, 'ironic' humor and disease pathology.’  roars writer Morrison, dispatching three massive warriors of the Uruk-Hai with a single razor-edged arc of his legendary Elven blade, Durinduryll, the Sword That Never Shuts Up. 'It’s bigger,  wilder, uglier and more heart-rending than the best summer blockbuster movie and if, like me, you love the awful smells of  failure, shame, male pattern baldness and seedy compromise, then you're sure to revel in the squirming twists and turns of this exotic international spy-fi thriller, where games of identity, madness and planetary hygiene combine with perverted sex, kitchen sink realism and ultra-technology to blind the mind’s eye and infect the soul forever. Sights to scupper the sanity! Philosophies to burst the frontal lobes! People with combovers having sex! ‘Certified UnCool Brutalist Pop-Fic EVERY MONTH for a twelvemonth and a day!’

Yeah, right! And that’s only the half of it. Grant Morrison’s first creator-owned series since the groundbreaking, cult hit THE INVISIBLES,  is a harrowing 13 issue rake through the middens of 21st century life, love, death and low self-esteem. the filth #1 debuts on June 5th 2002 from DC Comics/Vertigo with coloring by Matt Hollingsworth, lettering by Clem Robins and editing by Karen laBerger.

WE ARE THE HAND THAT WIPES THE ARSE OF THE WORLD
 

PREPARE FOR INOCULATION.

STAY CLOSE TO THE SICK BAG. 

THIS IS THE FILTH.
