Subcultural Karate Turtles is a satirical graphic novel by artist/musician Adam Green. Parodying the popular Ninja Turtles cartoon, Green reimagines the turtles as subcultural artists who must battle the mainstream to determine the future of art. Set in an intergalactic Kabuki theater, the book is a play inside of a comic book. Against the backdrop of childhood iconography, the psychedelic dialogue functions as a critique of cultural theory.
In War and Paradise, a graphic novel by creative polymath and Moldy Peaches founder Adam Green (born 1981), the internet meets the Middle Ages and satire becomes the most logical response to our own wildly confusing, nonsensical world. A spiritual sequel to the 2016 cult film Adam Green's Aladdin, the story follows our hero Pausanias, a geographer of the soul, alongside a cast of unconventional characters through a kaleidoscopic landscape of absurdism, illustrated in full color by musician Toby Goodshank, animator Tom Bayne and Green himself.
