Superhero Pop Art
Michael Moorcock was recognized for warping the exterior sides of genre—but no further so compared to their four Jerry Cornelius books, known as The Cornelius Quartet. These publications are jam-packed with increasingly unusual, anarchic storylines, in a surreal pop-art globe. Now they will have some crazy brand new covers!
It would be impossible to reject the profound influences that Michael Moorcock’s Jerry Cornelius novels have had, not just in the styles of science-fiction and fantasy, but also popular songs, cinema, and tv. Or it could simply be that Moorcock was so completely in track with the development of postmodernism that he expected inside the writing, inside the state of mind, that which was ahead, and all the materials that generally seems to derive from The Cornelius Quartet, in actuality, derives through the zeitgeist rather. In reading the collection, the audience on cusp associated with 21st century, it will act as a historical piece, positing the genealogical influence of a few more sophisticated works, from Bryan Talbot’s graphic novel Heart of Empire to David Bowie’s album Outside; Jerry Cornelius usually common origin for much of contemporary postmodern (British) popular art.$8
