Bill Sienkiewicz 1992: Coup D’Etat — The Assassination of John F. Kennedy card set
Oliver Stone’s JFK launched the long-simmering Kennedy assassination conspiracy theories into the stratosphere. Without getting into the validity of the theories (c’mon, we all know it was Elektra, right?), there’s no denying the unparalleled drama inherent in the theories; and the people and places involved have taken on a mythical status as a result.
Sienkiewicz’s art is more than up to the task of conveying the gripping mythology and he mixes media and illustration styles to bring they shadowy subjects to warped life. Of all the card sets he illustrated, this Coup D’Etat is easily the most riveting.

Kirk demonstrates his ability to simultaneously play three saxophones, passing out whistles amongst his audience he insists that they accompany him “in the key of w.”
In two shining examples of Avant-gardism John Cage shares his concepts while preparing his production “musical bicycle” with two collaborators, introducing Kirk’s music in an echo chamber.
