-- “Marvelous… a kind of intently controlled nervous breakdown on paper.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)

In an autobiography, the author and the subject are the same person… but now they’ve both gone missing. The Fate of the Artist is a complex weaving of different strains of invention including a mock prose detective story, an imaginary Sunday comic strip, a mock fumetti-style interview with the author's daughter, intertwined with Campbell's beloved brand of autobiographical comic storytelling. In this deluxe reissue of a groundbreaking book, the award-winning cartoonist of From Hell and Alec presents a complex, caustic, and surprising meditation on the lonely life of the artist and the busy life that swirls around him. -- a 96-page, full-color, softcover graphic novel with 3" French flaps, 6.75” x 9” (portrait)
