"Adult Comedy Action Drama is a visual diary mixing and mingling snapshots with found imagery of media culture's detritus, inane jokes painted on canvas, trashy book covers, and cartoons from The New Yorker. It is a hilariously intelligent, delightfully wacky, and convincingly accurate portrayal of life in an era where real and fake, fact and fiction, media and everyday life have become almost undistinguishable. Adult Comedy Action Drama is both an inventive artist's book and an overview of Prince's work. Prince is an obsessive collector of images and a gifted photographer. From his immense archives he has chosen these pictures and arranged them into this truly contemporary, provocative, sexy, and political visual narrative. Prince plays with havoc with the 1970's credo that the personal is the political and vice versa. It's a sophisticated breviary for pop culture aficionados, art world mavens, and anyone enamoured or repelled by the late 20th century's media madness."
