If on the night of a comics convention you were to go to the the hotel bar and buy a few drinks for a comic book pro, you'd soon hear stories about his fellow creators - tales of drinking and drugs, of missed deadlines and missing pants, of maniacal editors and crazed fans. These are the urban legends of the comic industry.

Acclaimed graphic novelist Bryan Talbot (creator of the award-winning The Adventures of Luther Arkwright, The Tale of One Bad Rat, Alice in Sunderland, and Grandville) saves you the cost of gin & tonics by bringing you this collection of the wild and hilarious anecdotes told by - and starring - some of comicdom's leading lights. This expanded edition includes all the stories from the original print edition and more. Illustrated by Hunt Emerson.

After more than a decade of publishing, with acclaimed books and best-selling creators, we came to feel that it was time to step beyond our "About Comics" name and our emphasis on the comics specialty market. Thus, Combustoica, here to bring you projects that are right for the world but may not be right for the comic book store. In some cases, Combustoica is the publisher; in other cases, we provide preparation and publication services for other publishers.
