Raw, Boiled and Cooked: Comics on the Verge includes the work of 40 comics artists and “posits the notion that a new generation of comics artists has emerged—some gathered, however loosely, around RAW magazine, others simply coinciding with the magazine’s emergence, but not associated with it. Raw, Boiled and Cooked tells a generational story, marking the rise of artists, influenced by the well-documented San Francisco Underground Comix movement of the ‘60s, who explore a humanistic interest in character and revel in an autobiographical impulse….”

“Comics are part of the vast area of visual culture that is just beginning to be welcomed into arts institutions. The form is deserving of serious consideration as an example of grassroots cultural activity that is unexpectedly profound, sometimes beautiful, and surely vital to understanding how we live and think today.” From the catalogue essay by Renny Pritkin, Chief Curator at YBCA.
