Russ Kick is best known for his disinformation guides that expose myths and lies by unearthing subversive facts and countercultural knowledge. His books include 50 Things You're Not Supposed to Know and You Are Being Lied To--volumes that challenge the reader to question assumptions. What he asks us to acknowledge with The Graphic Canon is this: Gulliver's Travels, Wuthering Heights, Leaves of Grass--these works of literature do not reside just on the shelves of academia; they flourish in the eye of our imagination. --New York Times review of The Graphic Cannon edited by Russ Kick-- "Reviews"
