True Swamp: Choose Your Poison
by Jon Lewis

"True Swamp is a true classic. Melancholy frogs, awkward cross-species relationships, thoughtful discussions on the meaning of life and love and the possibility of kindness, and of course the ever-present need to eat and not be eaten. Jon Lewis has created a world so rich in detail and personality that once you've dipped your toe in the warm larvae-filled water, you won't want to leave. And to tell the truth, you never will. It's been nearly twenty years since I first read these stories and still they simmer away inside my brain, like a benevolent ink-borne parasite that burrows ever deeper, exposing strange new layers of wonder and insight in that crowded fertile swamp we call life." — Dylan Horrocks, Hicksville

True Swamp: Choose Your Poison collects the first storyline of this landmark series, telling the tale of Lenny the Frog – part coming-of-age story, part fantastic adventure, part gutter poetry. Unavailable for over a decade, this 20th anniversary edition features meticulously-restored art, never-reprinted material, an Introduction by Charles Hatfield (The Hand Of Fire: The Comics Art Of Jack Kirby), and a Foreword by Ed Brubaker (Criminal, Captain America, Incognito).

200 pages, 7 x 10 inches, hardcover, b&w
