Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen by Dylan Horrocks - Excerpt
Written by Sonia Lei | Filed under previewsDylan HorrocksComing Attractions 4 Nov 2014 2:45 PM

Sam Zabel, a struggling cartoonist with an enormous creative block, hasn't actually drawn a comic in years. His world is reduced to the bare minimum of lifes necessities, and one day he discovers a word that perfectly captures the void he feels: "anhedonia." The absence of pleasure, of joy.

Acclaimed cartoonist Dylan Horrocks is back with this all new, long-awaited graphic novel, titled Sam Zabel and the Magic Pen, and we've got a 15-page downloadable excerpt for your viewing pleasure.

Sam Zabel is due out in December, and we'll be bringing you more previews soon. Get excited!
