The Loathsome World Of Ivan Brunetti

"Ivan Brunetti makes dark, misanthropic comics that channel taboo-laden subject matter - making his adoring readers gasp with relish," says GravityFreeDesign in a YouTube upload on Monday.

"Brunetti was born in Mondavio, Italy and moved to Chicago in the 1970s, always with a reverence for comic book art. He is most famous for his Schizo series, wherein he vents about capitalism, politics, and his own shortcomings.

"The Chicago Reader describes Brunetti's work as follows: 'A sense of humor as black an ink . . . a darkly funny, intensely personal, uncompromisingly nihilistic comic book.'

"Spin magazine writes, 'Brunetti's self-loathing and seething disgust is so unrelenting that it begs a simple question: What the hell is wrong with this guy?'

"He's contributed cover designs for The New Yorker magazine, and he is also the editor of An Anthology of Graphic Fiction, Cartoons, and True Stories.

"Currently, he teaches classes on comics, drawing, and design at Columbia College of Chicago."
