7 Miles a Second was written by the legendary East Village artist David Wojnarowicz during the last years of his life before his AIDS related death in 1992. It was originally published by DC's Vertigo imprint in 1996 and follows his childhood hustling on the streets of Manhattan, through his adult life with AIDS, and his anger with the indifference of the government and health agencies. 7 Miles a Second is illustrated by James Romberger and colored by Marguerite Van Cook and will be released by Fantagraphics in February. The new edition offers new pages; it has been published in hardcover in the oversized format originally intended and Van Cook's original watercolors have been restored.
