Hicksville

by

Hicksville Cover

 

Staff Pick

Hicksville is a terrific tale of love and betrayal, art and commerce, all steeped in an artistic brew of imagination and experience. Masterfully told in a variety of comic-book fragments and with a great cast of characters, Hicksville focuses on a tiny New Zealand town where comic books are the dominant art form. It's a rich story full of humor, emotion, romance, and real human drama. If you have an appreciation for the comics medium, you need to read this.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the best graphic novels of the past decade, back in print.

Considered to be a classic by many,Hicksville was named a Book of the Year by The Comics Journal and received nominations for two Ignatz Awards, a Harvey Award, and two AlphArt Awards (Best Album and the Critics Prize). It was one of the first contemporary graphic novels and is now back in print with a new cover and introduction. The world-famous cartoonist Dick Burger has earned millions and become the most powerful man in the comics industry. However, behind his rapid rise to success there lies a dark and terrible secret, as the biographer Leonard Batts discovers when he visits Burgers hometown of Hicksville in remote New Zealand. Hicksville is where the locals treasure comics and the library stocks Action Comics #1.
