In this pseudo-autobiography, the subject of the memoir has vanished without a trace.

As the narrative threads intersect and collide in surprising ways, the reader is carried along on a fantastic journey through the life of the artist. A master comics artist, here Eddie Campbell offers a complex, caustic, and surprising meditation on balancing the lonely life of the artist with the demands of everyday life

PS magazine : the best of the Preventive maintenance monthly by Will Eisner( Book )
3 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 215 libraries worldwide
"Will Eisner (1917-2005), best known for his influential comic book series The Spirit and his groundbreaking graphic novel A Contract with God, believed in the teaching power of comics, and from 1951 to 1971 he produced PS magazine for the U.S. Army. This Preventive Maintenance Monthly, called PS because it was a postscript to the standard technical manuals, was aimed at teaching American soldiers about weapons safety and proper maintenance of vehicles, aircraft, and electronics. Eisner illustrated these vital lessons with spot art, pinups, step-by-step guides, and comic strips. This collection, the best of Eisner's 227 issues of PS, explores this relatively unknown body of work--the missing link between his comic books and his later, mature graphic novels."--Page 4 of cover

The playwright by Daren White( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 156 libraries worldwide
"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 lay with passers-by who, statistically, were far less likely to be similarly soiled, at that precise moment. Similarly, the Playwright always derived an almost perverse sense of relief whenever he received news that an old friend had developed prostate cancer. Because statistically, he reasoned, such news significantly reduced the chances of him being similarly afflicted. And to be honest, at his age, his prostate needed all the statistical support he could muster." The Playwright: a dark, romantic comedy about the sex life of a celibate, middle-aged man"--P. [4] of cover

Alec : the King Canute crowd by Eddie Campbell( Book )
1 edition published in 2000 in English and held by 58 libraries worldwide
Alec is a brilliant and insightful romp through Eddie Campbell's own life, and it represents one of the best, and first, works in the autobiographical-comics genre. In it, we witness Eddie's progression from "beer to wine," or to put it more accurately, his inevitable maturation through time. Whether it's tales of his early pub-crawlin' days, or glimpses into his current private life with "wifey" and kids, there are "truths" here that transcend the factual and paint a picture of the way life should be. This collection, numbered at 51 in The Comics Journal's top comics of the century, has been much sought after by collectors of the serious graphic novel as well as readers new to the idea of comics. --Publisher

The lovely horrible stuff : my book about money by Eddie Campbell( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 32 libraries worldwide
Money makes the world go round, as they say... but HOW, exactly? Award-winning graphic novelist Eddie Campbell (From Hell, Alec) presents a fascinating journey into the wilderness of personal finance. With his trademark blend of research, anecdote, autobiography, and fantasy, Campbell explores how money underwrites human relationships, flowing all around us like the air we breathe - or the water we drown in. The result is a whimsical graphic essay, deeply grounded in Eddie's personal experiences with "the lovely horrible stuff, " ranging from the imaginary wealth of Ponzi schemes and television pilots to the all-too-tangible stone currency of the Micronesian island of Yap. In a world where drawing corporate superheroes requires literally transforming oneself into a corporation (which is kept in a shoebox under the bed), we are in strange territory, indeed. Fortunately, Campbell's wry eye and vivid full-color artwork imbue the proceedings with real humanity, making The Lovely Horrible Stuff an investment that's worth every penny
