Official Press Release
GREGORY, the fondly remembered series of four hilariously poignant one-shots written and drawn by Marc Hempel returns this March in the first of two black-and-white, manga-sized collected editions.
“It’s great that DC is putting this material back into print,” says Hempel. “People constantly come up to me at conventions to ask where they can find copies of GREGORY! I mean, how many comics from 1989 are even remembered, let alone still in demand? Even after all these years, the little lunatic has a manic and devoted following. All I can say is that for me, GREGORY was a labor of love. And I’m thrilled that not only will longtime fans be able to replace their worn out (or lent out and never returned) original copies, but a new generation of readers will have the opportunity to discover these stories for the first time. As Gregory himself would say, ‘IB ZUG!'”
A GREGORY TREASURY VOLUME 1 collects stories from GREGORY and GREGORY II: HERMAN VERMIN’S VERY OWN BEST-SELLING & CRITICALLY ACCLAIMED BOOK WITH GREGORY IN IT, written by Hempel with art and a new cover by Hempel.
A GREGORY TREASURY VOLUME 1 is a black-and-white trade paperback measuring 7 3/8″ x 5″ and is suggested for mature readers. It will be solicited in the January issue of Previews (Volume XIV, #1) and is scheduled to arrive in March with a cover price of $9.95 U.S.
