Alec: The Years Have Pants

Eddie Campbell may be most famous for his stunning illustration of Alan Moore’s From Hell but he’s spent significantly more time writing and illustrating his own autobiographical comics, using the fictional pseudonym of Alec MacGarry. Spanning multiple books, these have been tricky to get hold of lately, which makes it an extra special joy to see them all collected into a single volume – Alec: The Years Have Pants.

At 640 pages, you’ll appreciate this is comprehensive, starting with The King Canute Crowd, working through a number of episodes in Campbell’s life, and bringing him through to the present day. A classic archive of alternative comics that helped pave the way for the more sophisticated and literary graphic novels of today.
