BOX OFFICE POISON returns — in full color!
January 11, 2017
Alex Robinson's Box Office Poison began as a black-and-white comic book series, then grew to a massive graphic novel of over 600 pages — one of the first of Top Shelf's famous "bricks" and a smash hit that won the Eisner Award, the Angoulême International Comics Festival Award, and was eventually voted by Wizard Magazine the best independent graphic novel of all time.
Now, this page-turning "slice of life" saga is reborn for a new age. Box Office Poison Color Comics #1 has just arrived in stores, launching a new version of the series with all-new colors by Pat N. Lewis and pages of commentary from Alex Robinson himself. Jump on board and fall in love with these unforgettable characters all over again — or for the first time.
"A convincing, absorbing and satisfying fictional portrait of post-college life in New York City." — Publishers Weekly
"A salute to comics, an exploration of the human condition, and a solid, absorbing, and riotously snide tale about at least half of the things that make life important." — The AV Club
"Alex Robinson is pretty much king of the hill when it comes to slice-of-life comic book dramas, and Box Office Poison is a major reason why. This new mini-series is the perfect gateway for those who have never read the original graphic novel or those who want to experience an old favorite with a new coat of paint." — IGN
