IDW Delves Into Molly Crabapple’s “Week in Hell”

One week, one room, a whole lot of art and even more caffeine.

San Diego, CA (February 13, 2012)—In September 2011, acclaimed artist Molly Crabapple embarked on a truly unique and captivating endeavor: one hotel room, 270 square feet of blank paper, and five days to cover it all in art. Backed by her dedicated fans and armed with caffeine, champagne, and a lot of ink, she set about transforming the room with her engrossing and dynamic work; creating vast, imaginative pieces that would turn an ordinary hotel room into an otherworldly wonderland.

"I conceived of Week in Hell as a way to break on through to the other (artistic) side by drawing beyond the limits of endurance," said Crabapple. "I never imagined that so many people would want to help me do it. While covering the room in drawings, I thought I was pro until I collapsed at the end of one 20-foot wall. The room killed me a bit, but I killed it a bit, too."

Also featuring a foreword by Warren Ellis, photography by Steve Prue, and a cover by fashion photographer Clayton Cubitt, this is an art book unlike any other.

THE ART OF MOLLY CRABAPPLE: WEEK IN HELL is the first volume of a three-volume art-book series that IDW will be producing with Crabapple in 2012.

"I'm ecstatic to be doing these books with Molly," said IDW's Chris Ryall, Chief Creative Officer/Editor-in-Chief. "Her art is wildly inventive, wholly original, and just pleasant as can be. Which are also terms that apply to Molly herself, too. Also, I don't see how anyone could resist a book filled with whimsical tentacled creatures and other such flights of fancy adorning fancy hotel room floors, walls, doors, and ceilings."

About the Author - SuperginraiX


SuperginraiX is the biggest sap on The Outhousers' payroll (wait, we get paid?). He reads every issue of every crappy Marvel crossover so you don't have to. Whats worse is that he pays for his books, thus condoning Marvel's behavior. If The Outhouse cared for his well being at all, they'd try and get him into some sort of rehab center. But, alas, none of us even know how to say his name. For a good time, ask Super why Captian America jumped off the Helicarrier in Fear Itself. Super lives in the frozen wastland that is Minnesota with 15% of the state's population living under his roof: a wife he makes wear an Optimus Prime mask, two gremlins, and his mother-in-law.
