Today's installment features the accomplished 1997 debut by Brian Biggs:
Frederick & Eloise: A Love Story
Brian Biggs is a talented illustrator whose first comic is a strange and hypnotic love story that maneuvers around Paris and Frederick's dreams with a light touch that belies its grisly subject matter. Told in a strict format of two panels per page, it features Biggs's elegant and surreal drawings. Consider a comic written by Roman Polanski and drawn by Alfred Hitchcock and you'll have some idea of what to expect: dreamlike and perverse (though not in the least bit explicit), it engages the senses and lingers in the mind. This stunning debut is presented in a unique, deluxe mini-book format, printed on high-quality, enamel-coated art paper, with full-color painted covers and a beautifully executed halftone interior. This is one of the most accomplished works by a new talent we've ever been privileged to publish.
