From the critically acclaimed Canadian cartoonist of Clyde Fans and It's a Good Life comes a humorous graphic novel on the obsession of collecting comic books.Taking a break from the serialization of his saga Clyde Fans and the design of The Complete Peanuts, Seth creates in this stand-alone piece a farcical world of people whose passion lies in the need to own comic books and only in pristine, mint condition.Meet Wimbledon Green, the self-proclaimed world's greatest comic book collector who brokered the world's best comic book deal in the history of collecting. Comic book retailers, auctioneers and conventioneers from around North America, as well as Green's collecting rivals, weigh in on the man and his vast collection of comic books. Are Green's intentions honourable? Does he truly love comics or is he driven by the need to conquer? Finally, is he really even Wimbledon Green?Here is a charming and amusing caper where comic book collecting is a world of intrigue and high finance. Part riotous chase, part whimsical character sketch, Wimbledon Green looks at the urge to collect and the need to reinvent oneself.
Seth's comic book series, Palookaville, has been collected into It's a Good Life and Clyde Fans. He illustrates for the New Yorker and designs the bestselling The Complete Peanuts.
