Graphic Content; LSD, the CIA and 2000AD. Stewart Kenneth Moore on his new graphic novel PROJECT MK-ULTRA and his love of comics

  • PROJECT MK-Ultra, Stewart Kenneth Moore’s new graphic history of a particular moment in the history of the CIA is one of those stranger-than-fiction stories that is hard to believe. It takes in LSD, the counter-culture and some very strange Black Ops. Based on a film script by Brandon Beckner and Scott Sampila, the result is a mad, kaleidoscopic vision of visionaries and villains that speaks to the conspiracy theorist in all of us.
