YES. It’s about time somebody like Stephen Strange steps in here and beats the SHIT out of the Beyonder. I mean, the Thing just beat the shit out of him in the last crossover issue, but the Beyonder let him do it so it doesn’t really count.

Using the covers of old encyclopedias, law books and African American reference books, Samuel Levi Jones makes collages on canvas that question what changes as time passes. Jones employs books as symbols of obsolescence to further represent how the ideas expressed therein can also run their course. (At Chelsea’s Galerie Lelong through Jan 28th).
