This Must Be a Gala Day For You, Mister Firefly …

leave a comment »

A DUCK SOUP quote is an offbeat way to begin a serious post, but Wednesday, April 27th will indeed be a gala day for me, the culmination of two years of research, interviews, and writing.

Wednesday, April 27th is the official on-sale date for GENIUS ISOLATED: THE LIFE & ART OF ALEX TOTH. This oversized 325-page hardcover contains twenty complete comics stories drawn by Toth, long revered by those in the know as an “artist’s artist,” plus 30,000 of my words, chronicling Toth’s biography from boyhood to the early 1960s (the remainder of his life story will be contained in a forthcoming second volume, GENIUS, ILLUSTRATED). Unlike other Toth books slated to appear this year, GENIUS, ISOLATED has been produced in cooperation with and with the approval of the Toth Estate and will return a percentage of sales to that Estate. The enthusiastic reactions of Alex’s four children to the book have been extremely gratifying.

Look for an interview Dan Nadel, editor of the well-respected COMICS JOURNAL, conducted with ISOLATED’s designer/editor, Dean Mullaney, and me at http://www.tcj.com on the 27th, as well.
