Bundled Extra: The Big Book Of Trashed To Abrams

imageThe cartoonist Derf Backderf made a lengthy announcement here that his new-work follow-up to his My Friend Dahmer at Abrams will be a book based on his Trashed characters, only this time a mix of straight-up fiction and non-fiction elements rather than memoir. The end result should be a narrative that works on that level but also gets at the topic of garbage collection and processing in America. Derf's write-up is a lot more entertaining than mine, though, and if you're a fan you'll want to read it if you haven't already.

That book did very well for Abrams and for Derf -- it's currently one of the official selection at the forthcoming Angouleme Festival -- and I imagine both camps are excited about this new work. Derf notes that this is what drove him to move away from serializing work on-line that will now go into that Abrams release.
