Artist Melanie Jackson has used the image of the Money Devil on the cover of her new ‘comic’ (her word) Nexus which she launches at the end of October 2013. (Check her site for details).  Her representation of the excremental quality of the Devil’s outpourings (from one end at least) is rather more literally rendered than in the original versions.  And quite right too.  Apparently the comic itself adapts bits of an earlier post here and requotes Freud’s famous association between gold and shit.  Can’t wait to see the finished article.
