Alec: How to Be an Artist GN (2001 Top Shelf) comic books 2001
1st printing. Story and art by Eddie Campbell. Eddie Campbell has created a graphic novel about the rise and fall of the graphic novel itself, and along the way draws potent conclusions about the very nature of art. It is a graphic novel about becoming and artist and making your way in the world as an artist. The narrative teems with established luminaries as well as `would be` artists. Many are briefly examined while a few have been made the subjects of penetrating case histories in this cavalcade of dreamers, fools and sudden millionaires. Softcover, 6 1/2-in. x 9-in., 128 pages, B&W. Cover price $13.95.
