His bestselling anthologies, including You Are Being Lied To and Everything You Know Is Wrong, have sold over half a million copies.

Russ Kick lives and works in Nashville, Tennessee, and Tucson, Arizona.

Reviews

"These works of literature do not reside just on the shelves of academia; they flourish in the eye of our imagination ... will leave you awe-struck." --New York Times Book Review

"It's easily the most ambitious and successfully realized literary project in recent memory, and certainly the one that's most relevant for today's readers" --NPR, Indie Booksellers Pick 2012's Best

"The Most Beautiful Book of 2013 is The Graphic Canon, Vol. 3" --Publishers Weekly, "Best Summer Books 2013"

"The Graphic Canon is startlingly brilliant." --School Library Journal

"This meaty slab is laced with more wit, beauty, social commentary and shock than one might expect." --Kirkus Reviews

"This is not only a survey of the world's diverse artistic past, but also a breathtaking glimpse of this young medium's incredible future ... proves most powerful in its tear-inducing panoply of graphic talents and styles working in the comics medium." --Booklist (starred review)

"The trilogy should occupy a prominent place in all adult graphic novel collections." --Library Journal

"The Graphic Canon is absolutely the most ambitious book I've picked up this year." --Newsday

"Kick's passionate introductions anchor the collection, appearing before every adaptation and setting writer and artist in context. And they're central to the anthology's purpose: to entertain, but also to broaden the mind, to foist James Joyce on people who never got beyond Buck Mulligan, to nudge lovers of literature to pick up a graphic novel or three." --The Guardian

"Bold, brilliant ... By turns playful and beautiful, this visual treatment is more than entertainment; it offers a new perspective for understanding these enduring works." --Reader's Digest

"A treasure trove for literary comics fans." --Wired

"A vibrant, feverish dance through some of the best parts of our artistic history." --Paste

"Verdict: Russ Kick brings it on home - to the home library - with style." --The Austin Chronicle
