1st printing. By David Chelsea. Twenty-Four Times Two. The author of David Chelsea In Love and Perspective! picks up Scott McCloud's ball and runs with it in these two 24-Hour comics stories. In "Everybody Gets It Wrong" David makes the argument that all autobiographical comics produced so far, including his own, falsify experience because they show the author as one of the characters rather than telling the story as seen from his own eyes. Putting theory into practice, David illustrates a number of dreams from his diary while strictly keeping to the dreamer's point of view. "Sleepless" takes this method further, telling a richly stippled story of lava lamps, time travel, and a mysterious lady cartoonist in blue velvet through the eyes of a lead character who is never shown. Softcover (Saddle-Stitched/Stapled), 5-in. x 7-in., 48 pages, B&W. Cover price $5.00.
