Douglas Rushkoff is a media theorist and documentarian. That unique blend of talents makes him ideal to pen a new graphic novel called Aleister and Adolf that promises plenty of mind-bending, iconography and mysticism. Having Michael Avon Oeming certainly makes the book feel even more psychedelic than it has any right to be.
In a story spanning generations and featuring some of the most notable and notorious idealists of the twentieth century, legendary occultist Aleister Crowley develops a powerful and dangerous new weapon to defend the world against Adolf Hitler’s own war machine—spawning an unconventional new form of warfare that is fought not with steel but with symbols and ideas. But these intangible arsenals are much more insidious—and perhaps much more dangerous—than their creators could have ever conceived.
Aleister & Adolf (978-1-50670-104-2) is in stores November 2, 2016. Full press release below.
