Buy Dean Haspiel! And our book, too...

We've been hard at work on adding the final touches to Graphic NYC Presents Dean Haspiel: The Early Years, a narrative tapestry that weaves GNYC's unique biographical and critical essays with a collection of Dean's autobio stories and early Billy Dogma (created back before the internets took Dean's bruiser over). It comes out from Desperado/IDW Publishing and is the definitive Dino Compendium.

You get 240 pages (including a sexy 8 page color section) for just $19.99! It's in the July Previews, so be sure to tell your local comic shop owner to put them in stock.

Hey, we'll even give you the Diamond code to pass off:  JUL100363

Graphic NYC Presents - Dean Haspiel: The Early Years, gives the low-down on the revolutionary indy artist, from his salad days working for Howard Chaykin on American Flagg! to his digital days spearheading the ACT-I-VATE web collective. The creators of nycgraphicnovelists.com, Christopher Irving and Seth Kushner, bring you Dino's early Billy Dogma and semi-autobio comics presented against the framework of Irving's essays and Kushner and Ryan Roman's photography. Along with a color section, this trade also features a never-before seen Billy Dogma story and artwork, all selected by Dean himself. Enjoy 240 pages of Dino's aggro-moxie in this sexy black and white trade with an 8 page color section, the first of a new series by Graphic NYC!
