Dean Haspiel and Jonathan Ames appear at Secret Headquarters on Wednesday, September 12 at 7 PM to celebrate the release of The Alcoholic 10th Anniversary Edition!
Dark Horse continues to expand its Berger Books imprint with legendary Vertigo founding editor Karen Berger with a tenth anniversary edition of Jonathan Ames’ The Alcoholic. Jonathan Ames is the creator of HBO’s Bored to Death, Starz’s Blunt Talk, and the critically acclaimed writer of Wake Up, Sir!, The Extra Man, What’s Not to Love?, and You Were Never Really Here, now a film starring Joaquin Phoenix. The Alcoholic marks Jonathan Ames’ first foray into comics and is illustrated by Emmy Award winner and Eisner Award nominated artist, Dean Haspiel (The Quitter, Billy Dogma, The Red Hook).
The Alcoholic: Tenth Anniversary Expanded Edition tells the awkward and agonizing tale of a boozed-up, coked-out, sexually confused, and hopelessly romantic author Jonathan A. Marked with humor and heartbreak, this poignant and moving tale explores the life 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. From a touching relationship with his aging great aunt, to an inebriated evening with an amorous octogenarian dwarf, The Alcoholic tells a story at once hilarious, excruciating, bizarre, and universal about how our lives fall to pieces and the enduring human struggle to put things back together again.
The new edition also features a new prose piece by Jonathan Ames expanding on the story material, as well as a special behind-the-scenes artist section!Aug. 17, 2018: Battle at the Comic Expo Signing
