Vertigo panel at NYCC

"Originally announced last year at NYCC, Alcoholic – an OGN by Jonathan Ames & Dean Haspiel – will be completed this year. Haspiel came up from the audience to talk about the book, which he jokingly called “90% autobiographical, unfortunately.” He added that it was the most “amazing first draft for a guy whose never written a comic book before” and that it will be one of the watershed books in the field of autobiographical/memoir comics to date. Ames inspired by Y: The Last Man and Fun Home to find his voice as a comics writer. Haspiel’s final thought was that Alcoholic will be a “great book for 2008,” suggesting that it will be some time before the art and final script are finished."
