Alec: Three Piece Suit Cover

 

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.

This collection, numbered at 51 in The Comics Journal's top comics of the century, has been much sought after by collectors of the serious graphic novel as well as readers new to the idea of comics.

Review:

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

Review:

"When I first read this book, I was finishing out a doomed relationship and found Alec's resigned attitude immensely reassuring Nowadays, it's Alec's willfully deluded descent into self-mythology that I find utterly compelling." Comics Journal

About the Author

Eddie Campbell is the illustrator and publisher of the enormously successful graphic novel From Hell, the gripping piece of crime fiction about Jack the Ripper that details the course of events that led up to the White Chapel Murders. From Hell will soon be released as a major motion picture from 20th Century Fox, starring Johnny Depp, Heather Graham, Ian Holm, and Robbie Coltrane. Directed by the Hughes Brothers.
