Summary
Compulsive Comics collects the very best of Eric Haven's singular brand of inverted-comic-book-consciousness and genre-bending short stories. "The Glacier" is about a lone scientist making a startling discovery. The volume's most controversial story, "I Killed Dan Clowes," is an epic conflation of autobio and fantasy. While driving around Oakland, ruminating on the history of underground comics in the Bay Area, the main character fatally hits acclaimed graphic novelist Daniel Clowes, and the absurdity only escalates from there
Summary
There are dinosaurs, murder fantasies, and secret wars in this collection of short comics stories
