    DescriptionOne of the best graphic novels of the past decade, back in print. Considered to be a classic by many, "Hicksville "was named a Book of the Year by "The Comics Journal "and received nominations for two Ignatz Awards, a Harvey Award, and two Alph'Art Awards (Best Album and the Critics' Prize). It was one of the first contemporary graphic novels and is now back in print with a new cover and introduction. The world-famous cartoonist Dick Burger has earned millions and become the most powerful man in the comics industry. However, behind his rapid rise to success there lies a dark and terrible secret, as the biographer Leonard Batts discovers when he visits Burger's hometown of Hicksville in remote New Zealand. Hicksville is where the locals treasure comics and the library stocks Action Comics #1.

    Review quote
    Praise for "Hicksville: " "Dylan Horrocks is clever, funny, and very, very good at making comic books. His characters grab you and haunt you and even make you worry for them. Buy this guy's comics.He knows what he's doing." "--"FRANK MILLER, author of "Dark Knight Returns ""["Hicksville"] is . . . a celebration of the richness of the comics artform." "--"Detroit "Metro Times ""A languid, Borgesian tale of love and theft that treats comics--and an unabashed love of the medium's folksy energy and rhythms--with poetic weight. ["Hicksville"] is a classic." "--Austin American-Statesman"
