Romain Slocombe – Prisoner of the Red Army


Prisoner of the Red Army (Prisonnière de l’armée rouge) is the debut output of a scandalous 25 year old illustrator who signs his name only, Romain.
A re-edition of the original book which was published in 1978 by Humanoïdes Associés.

This clever punk spirit, very close to the band Bazooka, captured the dark side of Japan and invented a new genre of SM, the “bondage surgery.

Since Romain Slocombe digs an obsessional and single rail, embodying his monomaniacal fantasy world in various art forms with talent. Prisoner of the Red Army made the generational leap, many monsters have been killed by the uncontrolled flow of daily images. One can finally read these redrawn photographs of Japanese women bound, wounded, tumefied, bandaged like real life, revealing the tragicomic atmosphere of the late ’70s, the spirit icy detachment of the chemical eye, with much as the talent as an artist in the middle of the world and already completely singular.
