Happy Hour in America anytime day or night
Written by Jen Vaughn | Filed under Tim Lanedigital comicscomiXology 23 Jan 2013 12:12 PM

Happy Hour in America from comiXology

Today Fantagraphics and comiXology present Happy Hour in America issues 1-4 by Tim Lane. Featuring installments of Belligerent Piano, Folktales and experimental comics reminiscent of that old-timey newspaper comic strip. Lane's characters drive a cool highway until they gotta stop for gas and a quick diner breakfast but pulse and threaten to suck you into your tablet. If your shave kit consists of Brylcreem, burglarly and murder then these tales might mirror some hard-knocks in your life. Originally distributed through John Porcellino's Spit and Half Distribution, these tricked-up juke box and train-jumpin' tales can be yours for $2.99 a piece.

 “Tim Lane’s stories resonate with a dramatic intensity and emotional life that’s genuinely rare in comics today. Heartache, hope, loss and redemption — all in their naked glory on every page. And his drawing is phenomenal!” – Glenn Head

Fans of postmodern pulp auteur Charles Burns would do well to seek out Lane’s comics. What I love about Lane’s work is his eye for grotesquerie and surrealism combined with incredible precision of line.” – Illo Watch
