Abstract
This article explores expressions of eroto-abject desire in two collaborative graphic narratives: Kathy Acker, Diane DiMassa, and Freddie Baer’s Pussycat Fever (1995) and David Wojnarowicz, James Romberger, and Marguerite Van Cook’s 7 Miles a Second (1996). Reflecting the resistance to heteronormative logics of age categorization, “adult-erated age” names the ways that childhoods in the texts are adult oriented but also characterizes how they, in their respective contexts, revise and reflect notions of impurity and being worsened as singularly queer ways of being and representing. This is accomplished by turning to traumatic memory and ill embodiment via graphic textual form.
