3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man HC

What would it be like to stand head and shoulders above everyone else -- and to keep growing? Unable to interact with a fragile world that isn't built to withstand your size? To live in a house that doesn't fit you anymore -- with a wife who doesn't either?

Craig Pressgang's life is well documented in his official CIA biography, Giant Man: Pillar of America, but the heroic picture it paints is only half the story. The continuous growth caused by Craig's strange medical condition brings a variety of problems as he becomes more isolated and unknowable. Told in three eras by three women with unique relationships with Craig, 3 Story follows his sad life from his birth to the present.

Tomorrow I will be launching a seperate, official blog for all things Sweet Tooth!

It will be your place to check out all the latest news and reviews on my new monthly Vertigo series, Sweet Tooth.

In addition, every month, on the day a new Issue comes out, I will post exclusive, never before seen pencils, inks, design and developmental work for that issue!

I will also be commissioning a bunch of my cartoonist friends to create Sweet Tooth inspired artwork, and posting it here along with reader sketches! That's right, if you send me any of your artwork depicting Sweet Tooth characters I will post it on the new blog as well.

I also miss the old letter columns in comics, so I will be using The Sweet Tooth blog to post your letters as well.

So check back tomorrow for the official launch, and details on the Top Secret Sweet Tooth Fan Club!

Sweet Tooth Promotional Offer Update

I seem to be getting a lot of the same questions thrown my way in regards to the Sweet Tooth 1 Sketch Promotion, so rather than respond to everyone individually, here we go...

1. I know it's impossible for U.S. and International readers to affix Canadian return postage, so just include $5 in the package along with a self addressed envelope, and I will use the money to affix the proper postage when I mail them back.

2. The sketches I will do will be quick head sketches of characters from Sweet Tooth. These are not full commissioned pieces, and I am not accepting character requests. As much as I'd like to do a fully realized piece for everyone, I just don't have the time.

3. There is no time limit on the offer, as long as you can find copied of #1, I'll be more than happy to sign them and send you a sketch. Also, many of you have asked about sending The Nobody as well, I'd be more than happy to sign those as well.

Thanks everyone, and thanks for supporting my work!

"From out of the deep woods and the mind of acclaimed indie cartoonist Jeff Lemire (THE NOBODY, The Essex County Trilogy) comes a new Vertigo monthly ongoing series like no other! After being raised in total isolation, Gus – a boy born with deer-like antlers – is left to survive in an American landscape devastated a decade earlier by an inexplicable pandemic. Even more remarkable is that Gus is part of a rare new breed of human/animal hybrid children who have emerged in its wake, all apparently immune to the infection.

Enter Jepperd, a violent, hulking drifter who soon takes in Gus and promises to lead him to "The Preserve," a fabled safe-haven for hybrid children. Along the way they'll have to contend with science militias, deadly scavengers, rival bounty hunters, and hybrid worshipping cultists as they fight to make it to safety and solve the mysteries of this deadly new frontier.

This bizarre and haunting new series is boldly written and illustrated by Eisner-nominated creator Jeff Lemire and elegantly colored by fellow Eisner nominee Jose Villarubia. A little boy with antlers, a big man with guns, a world without hope – SWEET TOOTH #1 ships in September for only $1.00!"
