Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Acclaimed novelist and creator of HBO's new series "Bored to Death" Jonathan Ames writes his first comics work with the original graphic novel THE ALCOHOLIC, illustrated by THE QUITTER artist Dean Haspiel.

This touching, compassionate, ultimately humorous story explores the heart of a failing writer who's coming off a doomed romance and searching for hope. Unfortunately, the first place his search takes him is the bottom of a bottle as he careens from one off-kilter encounter to another in search of himself.

About the Author

Jonathan Ames is a columnist, author, screenwriter, raconteur and sometime pugilist who resides in New York City. He is the author of several collections of journalism and novels including I Pass Like Night and Wake Up, Sir! Dean Haspiel is the Eisner award-nominated artist of Billy Dogma, Opposable Thumbs and many more independent comics, including American Splendor.
