Raw Power

A graphic novel by Andrew Harrison and Guy LeMay

                             

A former superhero becomes entwined with the art and music scene of early 1970s New York City.


Captain Ultima, a 1950s goldenboy superhero, is sent into a black hole by his greatest enemies. He spends almost twenty years going insane while floating helplessly through space. He finally crashes back to Earth as a drugged-out hobo with no powers and no memory. After living with a down-and-out Iggy Pop and becoming an artist sponsored by Andy Warhol, he plays a pivotal role in the early 70s collaborations between Iggy, David Bowie and Lou Reed. When Captain Ultima's powers return, his old enemies and allies come back, all looking to turn his new world upside down.
