“The Alcoholic” From Jonathan Ames And Dean Haspiel
Here is a fascinating book from author Jonathan Ames and illustrator Dean Haspiel entitled “The Alcoholic.” Based on Ames’ life, who follows protagonist “Jonathan A.” from earlier sexual experiences to his problems with alcohol. Mixed with the impressive cartoon work from Haspiel this hard cover book provides a graphic picture. Definitely a well worth read, without playing up the melodrama Ames depicts his own self destruction with great distinction. Available at Amazon from September 30, while in the meantime you can read an interview with Ames and Haspiel here.
