Enemies of the State #13 – Francis Bacon by E. A. Bethea

Enemies of the State is a book club podcast featuring a rotating cast of comics critics. We’re back this month with a special SPX edition of the show, and this month we’re talking about Francis Bacon with its author E. A. Bethea, published in 2021 by Domino Books. Ostensibly a comic about Francis Bacon, the figurative painter, Francis Bacon drifts around ideas of embodiment and the human condition in an unsure future. It was a pleasure to have Elizabeth on the podcast with us to discuss this multilayered, fascinating book.

Folks on the show this month:

  • Alex Hoffman, Publisher of SOLRAD
  • (Elizabeth) E.A. Bethea, cartoonist
  • Rob Clough, Acquisitions Editor of Fieldmouse Press
  • Daniel Elkin, Editor in Chief of SOLRAD
  • and Jules Bakes, freelance critic
