Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Alec is a brilliant and insightful romp through Eddie Campbell's own life, and it represents one of the best — and first! — works in the autobiographical-comics genre. In it, we witness Eddie's progression from "beer to wine," or to put it more accurately, his inevitable maturation through time. Whether it's tales of his early pub-crawlin' days, or glimpses into his current private life with "wifey" and kids, there are "truths" here that transcend the factual and paint a picture of the way life should be.

Review:

"Eddie's 'Alec' stories are probably about as good as comics ever get." Neil Gaiman
