About this item

Praise for Sam Alden's It Never Happened Again:

"Alden's natural sense of framing and pace, his willingness to use silent panels to tell stories, and his beautiful (yes, beautiful) pencil images combined to open my eyes to a new idea of what a great comic can be. It helps that he's also an excellent writer—both stories sketch out lonely, lost characters efficiently, and put them each through very different quests for meaning."—Dan Kois,Slate

"Two thematically divergent, but devastatingly human portraits from an emerging cartoonist displaying the sort of storytelling and artistic restraint that often only comes after years of toiling away at the drawing board. Alden is a talent to watch."—Publishers Weekly

A collection of two new stories from cartoonist and Adventure Time contributor Sam Alden. In "Household," a brother and sister deal with divergent memories of their father and grow closer than ever. In "Backyard," vegans and anarchists share a house, small dramas and bizarre transformations (featuring a new, never before published ending). Designed as a companion volume for the critically acclaimedIt Never Happened Again, New Construction cements Sam Alden's reputation as one of the best cartoonists of his generation.

Sam Alden was born in Portland, Oregon. His comic Haunter was included inBest American Comics 2013, and he is the recipient of the Ignatz Awards for Promising New Talent and Best Comic. He now lives and works as an illustrator, cartoonist, and animator in Los Angeles.
