"This impressive collection-- a high-water mark in the graphic novel's short history-- confirms that no one else in the medium combines emotional truth, literary intelligence, and formal daring with such adroitness and elegance." -- Booklist (starred review) "Witty and thoughtful ... a great and epic comic documentary novel like no other."-- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "The fact that we are finally able to watch young Alec slowly evolve, page by page, from a cheeky wastrel into a mature artist deeply committed to his work and his family is nothing less than a revelation ... the three decades of mature, complex and emotionally compelling work compiled here represent a major accomplishment in comics storytelling, and in storytelling, period. It's nothing less than a modern epic of the everyday."-- Glen Weldon, NPR "A profound piece ... Campbell makes it feel like the greatest adventure imaginable."-- Alex Pappademas, GQ "Campbell's art develops into a heroism of the freed line: like the blade of a skater, his pen achieves a precarious and delicate grace that should be recognized as a landmark in the history of comics."-- Rain Taxi Review of Books "Eddie Campbell's Alec stories were among the first of the modern era of autobiographical comics, and they still rate among the best-- witty, brilliantly illustrated, self-mocking without ever being mopey or pathetic, and most importantly, forever changing style to suit the needs of the story... Watching Campbell's storytelling and approach to art progress and evolve as these stories unfold is as close as you can get to watching a real human life change on the page. One of the must-own releases of the year."-- The AV Club "If autobiography is the lingua franca of the graphic novel form, Campbell is its undisputed Shakespeare."-- Richard Pachter, Miami Herald "ALEC is magic, and even if I knew how all of it was done I'd be doing you a disservice if I pointed out the wires and mirrors. ... It is written by someone who obviously finds being alive an endless source of novelty and conundrum."-- Alan Moore "Do you need me to tell you how good Eddie Campbell is? Or that ALEC is probably the best book-length comic about art and wine and midlife crises and families and friends and wine and love and art and saying goodbye and terror there is?"-- Neil Gaiman DESCRIPTION: For the first time ever, the groundbreaking autobiographical comics of master cartoonist Eddie Campbell (FROM HELL) are collected in a single volume! Brilliantly observed and profoundly expressed, the ALEC stories present a version of Eddie's own life, filtered through the alter ego of "Alec MacGarry."Over many years, we witness Alec's (and Eddie's) progression "from beer to wine"-- wild nights at the pub, existential despair, the hunt for love, the quest for art, becoming a responsible breadwinner, feeling lost at his own movie premiere, and much more! Eddie's outlandish fantasies and metafictional tricks convert life into art, while staying fully grounded in his own absurdity. At every point, the author's uncanny eye for irony and wry self-awareness make even the smallest occasion into an opportunity for wit and wisdom. Quite simply, ALEC is a masterpiece of visual autobiography. ALEC: THE YEARS HAVE PANTS (A LIFE-SIZE OMNIBUS) collects the previous Alec books THE KING CANUTE CROWD, GRAFFITI KITCHEN, HOW TO BE AN ARTIST, LITTLE ITALY, THE DEAD MUSE, THE DANCE OF LIFEY DEATH, AFTER THE SNOOTER, as well as a generous helping of rare and never-before-seen material, including an all-new 35-page book, THE YEARS HAVE PANTS.

"This quiet character study... succeeds on several levels, but its most potent component is the clearly recognizable and utterly naked humanity." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Campbell's watercolouring effects take his art into vivid new horizons ... [his] images skilfully complement and sometimes counterpoint White's witty third-person, documentary-style narrative ... This saucy satirical portrait is pure delight."-- Paul Gravett, author of Graphic Novels: Stories to Change Your Life "Wholly original, painfully astute and -- wonder of wonders -- surprisingly redemptive."-- Steve Duin, The Oregonian "The most satisfying piece of fiction I've experienced this year of any format. I really can't recommend it highly enough."-- Avoid the Future "There's a great emotional impact as the book progresses, underscored by Campbell's art. The Playwright is a touching and masterful work that is definitely one of the •must own' graphic novels of 2010."--Chad Nevett, Comic Book Resources Praise for Eddie Campbell (Alec, From Hell): "No one else in the medium combines emotional truth, literary intelligence, and formal daring with such adroitness and elegance."-_ Booklist "Campbell is one of the premier cartoonists of his generation."-- Publishers Weekly Artist Eddie Campbell and writer Daren White have teamed up to present a most peculiar love story. The Playwright rather enjoys a quiet moment in the local park. It is a good place to mentally sort his ideas, and is often frequented by pretty young ladies. He once saw a pigeon defecate onto a businessman's shoulder. It struck him as absurd that such an event is often considered lucky. Surely the luck lies with passers-by who, statistically, are far less likely to be similarly soiled at that precise moment. Similarly, the Playwright has always derived an almost perverse sense of relief upon receiving news that an old friend has developed prostate cancer. Because statistically, he reasons, such news significantly reduces the chances of himself being similarly afflicted. And to be honest, at his age, his prostate needs all the statistical support he can muster... The Playwright: a dark comedy about the sex life of a celibate middle-aged man.
