Gaylord Phoenix

Edie Fake is one of my super talented friends from college who has been doing incredible things! Amongst them is creating the comic series Gaylord Phoenix which I posted about way back three years ago. Since then there have been a couple more amazing issues which you can pick up at fine comic stores. More importantly Secret Acres has just published a book of all of his collected comics!!! Complete with a mesmerizing cover and the full insane story of magic and obsessive love, this book is pure delight. I can get lost in Edie’s pattern crazy world for hours. The intricate line quality gets so precise is some places, I am so impressed that this is all hand drawn. The book is printed in two lovely colors and you can pick up a copy right here. I’ll have to get Edie for an interview one of these days to get a look into that crazy imagination! ps. Edie works at my favorite Chicago comic store Quimby’s so you should stop in and tell him how much you love this book!
