About War and Paradise

Operating your consciousness can feel like playing a video game, and Adam Green would contend that it felt that way thousands of years before video games existed. In War and Paradise, the question of time and consciousness is central as the internet meets the Middle Ages. Green’s graphic novel is a comic farce spun out of control, out of time, and into an entirely new dimension of a Jodorowsky-like psychological survey through a lyrical interior landscape. As satire and absurdism conjoin to  become the most logical response to our own wildly confusing and nonsensical world, War and Paradise cuts its sharp social commentary with laughter. Green’s insightful and imaginative prose will transport you to somewhere you’ve never been before.

About Adam Green

Adam Green is an artistic polymath—a songwriter, filmmaker, visual artist, and poet.  A co-founder of The Moldy Peaches and author of ten solo-albums, his songs have been performed by artists as diverse as The Libertines, Carla Bruni, Kelly Willis, Dean & Britta, and Will Oldham.  Green’s paintings and sculptures have been the subject of exhibitions in America, Asia and Europe, including a 2016 show at the Fondation Beyeler Museum in Basel, Switzerland.  He wrote and directed the feature film The Wrong Ferarri (2010), the first feature film shot entirely on an iPhone, and Adam Green’s Aladdin (2016) which Buzzfeed.com described as “the trippiest movie ever made.” Green’s newest book War and Paradise is a graphic novel that combines his lyrical and visual vocabulary. The satirical war epic is about the clash of humans with machines, the meeting of spirituality with singularity, and the bidirectional relationship between life and the afterlife.
