"Graphic NYC Presents: Dean Haspiel—The Early Years gives the low-down on the revolutionary indie 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 192 pages of Dino's aggro-moxie in this sexy, black-and-white trade with a 16-page color section, the first of a new series by Graphic NYC!"
