About the Author

Eddie Campbell has been making a living from comics since the 1980s. He is best known as the artist of From Hell (with Alan Moore), and made a splash with Bacchus, whose monthly comic ran for 60 issues. His semi-autobiographical concoctions however form his favorite strain of his own work. The former material was gathered in Alec: The Years Have Pants, all except the full color book The Fate of the Artist and the all-new The Second Fake Death of Eddie Campbell.

Reviews

"Through a collage of early 1900s-style illustrations, blunt political cartoons, subtle slice-of-life moments, gallows humor, and a surreal crime story, Campbell wrestles with his own existential crisis as he attempts to uncover the truth behind his apparent doppelgänger. It's an indelible pseudo-autobiography from a true master of comics storytelling." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Campbell merges memoir and hardboiled mystery to create a fascinating and revealing portrait of how world events impact an individual's sense of self and creative drive." -- Library Journal
