Money makes the world go round, as they say... but HOW, exactly?
Award-winning graphic novelist Eddie Campbell (From Hell, Alec)
presents a fascinating journey into the wilderness of personal
finance. With his trademark blend of research, anecdote,
autobiography, and fantasy, Campbell explores how money underwrites
human relationships, flowing all around us like the air we breathe -
or the water we drown in.
The result is a whimsical graphic essay, deeply grounded in
Eddie's personal experiences with the lovely horrible stuff, ranging
from the imaginary wealth of Ponzi schemes and television pilots to
the all-too-tangible stone currency of the Micronesian island of Yap.
In a world where drawing corporate superheroes requires literally
transforming oneself into a corporation (which is kept in a shoebox
under the bed), we are in strange territory, indeed. Fortunately,
Campbell's wry eye and vivid full-color artwork imbue the proceedings
with real humanity, making The Lovely Horrible 'stuff an investment
that's worth every penny.
