|The groundbreaking Trondheim autobio graphic novel: finally collected and released in English.|
From the Publisher:
One of the very first autobiographical graphic novels to come from France,Lewis Trondheim’s Approximate Continuum Comics set the standard for thehonest, often hilarious chronicling of a cartoonist’s life. Trondheim’s typicallygraceful, confident cartooning shows him wrestling with his own demons (sometimes,in dream sequences, literally) and an often malevolent world, while tryingto maintain his rising career as one of Europe’s most beloved cartoonists.
Approximate Continuum finally brings American readers the first portion of the“Trondheim autobio trilogy” that also comprises the Eisner nominated “At LooseEnds” meditation serialized in Mome (which will be released as a graphic novel in2012) and the ongoing “Little Nothings” series of short slice-of-life stories (threeto date from NBMPublishing).
This volume contains the first three chapters serializedin the Nimrod comic book, the last three (never-before-translated)chapters, and a hilarious “rebuttal” section inwhich Trondheim’s family and cartoonist friends (includingEpileptic creator David B. and Trondheim’s mom) dispute(or ruefully agree with) Trondheim’s depictions.
