Synopses & Reviews
Noel Coleman's got it made. He has a successful career, a house in the country, and a wonderful girlfriend. He's also been lying like crazy about his secret past.
Within a day of returning to New York City to sell his apartment, Noel's being chased by the cops and stalked by a serial killer. To top it off, his unsuspecting fiancee's followed him to the city with a big surprise.
Will he finally tell her the truth?
And will either of them survive the experience?
Kyle Baker (King David, Why I Hate Saturn) returns to comics with a spectacular, full-color urban romantic comedy about what happens when the things we hide come back to haunt us.
"Besides the pleasures of Baker's wisecracking dialogue, there's a rousing chase through Central Park and a breathtaking fight to the finish with the would-be killer aboard the Staten Island Ferry, all rendered in a combination of virtuoso comics draftsmanship and richly saturated coloring....[A]n unpretentious, rip-roaringly entertaining comic book farce." Publishers Weekly
"[Baker] attempts an 'urban romantic comedy' — but his disparate influences and preposterous plot suggest something altogether different....Baker brings together a noirish, hard-boiled look for his foregrounds...with backgrounds that would make the animators at Disney proud....[T]his full-color production deserves attention for DC's effort to entertain adults for a change." Kirkus Reviews
"You Are Here is a very funny book. Baker draws most of his comedy from the skillful way he places odd characters in odder situations....In total, the humor, the drama, the satire, and the fine, if cinematic, art is enough for me to overlook minor points of contention....[A] strong and important book for Baker."

Timed to coincide with the release of his V2K project I Die at Midnight, this critically-praised, visually dazzling graphic novel earned Writer/Artist Kyle Baker (Gen13: Carny Folk) this year's Eisner Award for Best Writer/Artist — Humor. MATURE READERS.
