The Truth Behind Dino

 Not absolutely absolute final cover image
Design by Seth Kushner

Words: Christopher Irving

Four years ago, I took my first trek to New York, where I interviewed Dean "Dino" Haspiel for a book that didn't happen.

Now, without the constraints of censorship, and the creative freedom and space to do it right, we're releasing Graphic NYC Presents: Dean Haspiel the Early Years this October through Desperado Publishing and IDW! This 240 page book combines reprints of Dean's early work with an exclusive retrospective essay on Dean's life and career, done in the trademark GNYC style.

The two elements are woven together to create a linear and fluid read designed by Rich Fowlkes, smattered with photos by Seth and guest photographer Ryan Roman. Not only will you get the scoop on Dean's life and career, but we also reprint several of Dean's autobio and Billy Dogma work!

And there just might be an unpublished treat or two included...

We'll give updates and a sneak peek (or two) the closer we come to the release date.
