Something Terrible (Hardcover) (Dean Trippe)
about this item
This striking, critically acclaimed autobiographical work tells a gut-wrenching but ultimately hopeful story of trauma and recovery, and makes a case for the power and importance of fictional heroes. It chronicles the effects of unthinkable childhood pain on the creator's adult life, examining the conflict between the popularly-accepted "Cycle of Abuse" and the message at the core of all good superhero stories: "You are who you choose to be."
Dean Trippe is a comic book artist known for creating the webcomic Butterfly and the graphic novel Power Lunch, as well as co-founding the superhero redesign blog Project Rooftop.
