A celebration of the longest-lasting independent film company that STILL hasn’t made a hit!
For over FORTY YEARS, Troma Studios has blazed its own bloody, slime-covered trail, making movies their own damn way! From The Toxic Avenger to The Class Of Nuke 'Em High to Poultrygeist to Tromeo And Juliet, Lloyd Kaufman never compromised, waving his independent freak-flag freely, and helped jumpstart the careers of luminaries such as James Gunn, Trey Parker, Eli Roth, Oliver Stone and countless others! How, you might ask, did a couple of rebels with almost no cash manage to make a library of a THOUSAND films? You'll have to pick up this incredible collection to find out, featuring never-before-seen film stills, rare posters, candid interviews, and buckets and buckets and BUCKETS of fake blood...
This Limited, Deluxe Edition of The Art of Troma celebrates of the longest-lasting independent film company that STILL hasn't made a hit! With bonus materials! This version of the Hardcover book comes in a video cassette-themed slipcase and features both a print signed by Lloyd Kaufman and a supplemental book featuring art from Troma fans!
Author Fred Van Lente:
“I had a really terrific time delving into the history of one of the richest stories in all of independent American movies. The book has turned out spectacularly, thanks to the incredible work of designer Jon Adams. None of it would have been possible without Lloyd Kaufman, Michael Herz and the Troma staff opening up their forty-year-plus archive to us, so big thanks to them. This book is a juicy distillation of a studio that’s entertained its fans and pissed-off establishment types for decades.”
