(W/A/CA) Tom Neely

The collected graphic novel of the greatest love story ever told features twenty short stories about the domestic life of “Henry” and “Glenn” as well as their neighbors “Daryl” and “John.” Digging beneath Glenn’s bricks in the front yard, Henry uncovers Glenn’s mother, freshly unearthed, moves in with him and Henry. Without giving too much away, Glenn’s mommy issues come to the surface as she critiques his art, replaces his wardrobe, scrubs their dungeon, and recalls his childhood. Henry and Glenn go to therapy together, battle an evil cult in the forest, and profess their love between dealing with repeated jealousy and normal relationship problems. It’s a true testament to the power of love to overcome even the biggest, manliest egos of our time.

BIO INFORMATION:

Carla Speed McNeil – Since 1996, Finder has set the bar for science-fiction storytelling, with a lush, intricate world and compelling characters. Now, Carla Speed McNeil’s Eisner Award-winning series comes to Dark Horse with the original graphic novel Voice.

In a society defined by its intricate network of clans, Rachel Grosvenor has grown up an outcast, straddling worlds. Now, her quest for admission to a highly exclusive clan sends Rachel spiraling into the dark underbelly of Anvard and a paradox that holds the key to her future: How do you find a Finder?

* Rising star Carla Speed McNeil has been nominated for seventeen industry awards, winning five times, since 1998!

* Voice won the 2009 Eisner Award for Best Webcomic.

* “Completely fascinating.” -Warren Ellis

* “Finder is, bar none, the best SF comic being published today.” -Strange Horizons

Benjamin Marra – Benjamin Marra is the notorious creator of the comic books NIGHT BUSINESS, GANGSTA RAP POSSE and THE INCREDIBLY FANTASTIC ADVENTURES OF MAUREEN DOWD (A WORK OF SATIRE AND FICTION).

Marra’s comic book work has drawn comparison to mainstream masters Jim Steranko and Paul Gulacy as well as underground comix legends R. Crumb and Spain. His work exists beyond the cutting edge of independent comic books and operates within the cut itself.

Marra’s illustration work has been recognized by The Society of Illustrators, The Society of Publication Designers, American Illustration and the Art Directors Club. Some of  his clients include Playboy, Rolling Stone, The New York Times, Marvel Comics, Vice, Nylon, Widen+Kennedy and McCann-Erickson.

Jeffrey Brown – After growing up in Michigan, a 25-year-old Jeffrey Brown moved to Chicago in 2000 to pursue an MFA at the School of the Art Institute. He splashed onto the comics scene with the self-published relationship memoir Clumsy, which earned praise from cartoonists and readers alike, and was eventually picked up by Top Shelf. Many acclaimed graphic novels followed, establishing Brown as both a hyper-sensitive chronicler of bittersweet romance (Unlikely, Any Easy Intimacy) and a deadpan master of absurdist humor (Incredible Change-Bots, Sulk, I Am Going to Be Small).

Additional projects include: directing a music video for Death Cab for Cutie; the autobiographical collections Little Things, Funny Misshapen Body, and Undeleted Scenes; and the observational books Cat Getting Out of a Bag and Cats Are Weird. The prolific Mr. Brown lives and works in Chicago.
