Clover Press Purchase Information

Clover Press came onto my radar with the release of MK-Ultra: Sex, Drugs and the CIA. A graphic novel by Stewart Kenneth Moore which takes you on a virtual whirlwind discovery of the bizarre experiments the CIA conducted by introducing LSD into the general populace and its own agents. Yes, that happened.

Ever since my virtual acid trip, courtesy of one Stephen Kenneth Moore, I’ve been keeping a close eye on the releases from Clover Press. Specifically, looking out for enough releases which showed off Clover Press for what it is and more importantly – what differentiates them from other publishers.

The next few months has some absolutely stellar releases ranging from the old timey era of Terry and the Pirates to modern satire from creator Ruben Bolling. Below is a round up of Clover Press incredible releases coming your way or already available.

ELECTRIC FRANKENSTEIN: ILLUSTRATED LYRICS

Electric Frankenstein, published by Clover Press
Electric Frankenstein, published by Clover Press

Electric Frankenstein asked over 100 artists to create short comics based on the lyrics of their songs. What was born was sometimes beautiful and poetic, but other times just downright disturbing and raw! Judgment will not be passed on what you gravitate towards! All lay between the covers of this book.

Releasing over 100 records all over the world since 1992, Electric Frankenstein is where AC/DC meets The Dead Boys! EF’s high energy punk rock and roll combines the raw and energetic sounds of Punk Rock and Garage Punk (Dead Boys, Ramones, Damned, Misfits, Sabbath etc.) with elements of hard rock played by bands like MC5, Stooges, AC/DC, Kiss, Mott the Hoople, Alice Cooper, and so on.

Electric Frankenstein has proved to be highly influential, helping to spark a rock revival among the youth of the time throughout the world from the US to Europe to Scandinavia to Japan, known as the New Rock Revolution.

Yoe Books and Clover Press teamed up again to help bring another amazing book to the public.

Electric Frankenstein: Illustrated Lyrics is a 352 page full color graphic novel available as a Paperback and Hardcover.

Hardcover: $75.00
Paperback: $40.00

MK-ULTRA: SEX, DRUGS & THE CIA

MK-Ultra, published by Clover Press
MK-Ultra, published by Clover Press

Created by Stewart Kenneth Moore

Based on and Adapted from the Film Screenplay by Brandon Beckner & Scott Sampila

San Francisco, 1971. As the Vietnam War rages, the government wages war at home against the hippy counter-culture. High profile drug trials capture headlines. Seymour Phillips, a headstrong journalist eager to prove himself, discovers key information uncovering a vast drug network. A routine interview leads to a sensational accusation that the man accused of trafficking mass quantities of LSD, works for the CIA.

While most Americans were watching Leave it to Beaver and listening to The Everly Brothers, an eclectic group of CIA operatives were spiking each other’s coffees with LSD, throwing decadent parties and hiring prostitutes to slip unsuspecting johns drug-laced drinks in order to observe every stoned and kinky moment from behind two-way mirrors.

And this was only when they weren’t dreaming up the next far reaching “official” application for this new, all-powerful, mind blowing drug—a drug that would ironically fuel the counter-culture over a decade later. Coincidence? Maybe not.

MK-Ultra: Sex, Drugs & The Cia is a 152 page full color graphic novel available as a hardcover.

Published by Clover Press
Available now
RRP: $29.99
