SPECIAL 3RD PRINTING OF GOOD-BYE, CHUNKY RICE
By Craig Thompson
Top Shelf Productions is celebrating the 10,000th copy of GOOD-BYE CHUNKY RICE (and the selling out of two print runs) with a completely redesigned graphic novel. If you haven’t jumped onto this speeding bandwagon, now’s the time to do so. Alan Moore says: “Both funny and genuinely touching in turn, Craig Thompson’s Good-bye, Chunky Rice is an affecting meditation upon friendship, loneliness and loss, all delivered with a real feel for the musicality of the comic strip form. … Highly recommended.” Spin Magazine says: “This one-shot graphic novel is the comics debut of the year; every one of its 128 pages is beautifully composed, sparkling with invention and life.” Publishers Weekly says: “Thompson has crafted an enduring fable … that will charm anyone separated from a dear and loving friend.” Good-bye, Chunky Rice is an absolutely essential tome for every graphic novel reader. A quite picture novella of a journey to find one’s self, and the deeper meaning of life. Special 3rd printing.

Top Shelf Productions is proud to announce the debut of the all-new ongoing comic book series: HAPPY. Not for the weak of heart, Josh’s incredibly drawn comics are a disturbing exposé on the dark side of the American Dream, pointing out the sometimes ludicrous underbelly of Democracy and Prosperity. His delicious art and bizarre concepts are simply mind-boggling. Fans of Ivan Brunetti’s SCHIZO, Pete Sickman-Garner’s HEY, MISTER and Johnny Ryan’s ANGRY YOUTH COMIX will definitely want to “get Happy.” MATURE READERS.
