  • Money makes the world go round, as they say... but HOW, exactly?Award-winning graphic novelist Eddie Campbell (From Hell, Alec)presents a fascinating journey into the wilderness of personal finance. With histrademark blend of research, anecdote, autobiography, and fantasy, Campbellexplores how money underwrites human relationships, flowing all around us likethe air we breathe — or the water we drown in. The result is a whimsicalgraphic essay, deeply grounded in Eddie's personal experiences with "the lovelyhorrible stuff," ranging from the imaginary wealth of Ponzi schemes andtelevision pilots to the all-too-tangible stone currency of the Micronesianisland of Yap.
  • In a world where drawing corporate superheroes requires literallytransforming oneself into a corporation (which is kept in a shoebox under thebed), we are in strange territory, indeed. Fortunately, Campbell's wry eye andvivid full-color artwork imbue the proceedings with real humanity, making TheLovely Horrible Stuff an investment that's worth every penny.
