Variety reviews THE ALCOHOLIC

"The Alcoholic (Vertigo, $19.99, out in September) is a groovy tale that’s the best so far of Vertigo’s new series of original graphic novels. Novelist Jonathan Ames manages to bring his distinctive voice to comics with a script that’s funny, touching and seemingly tailor made for artist Dean Haspiel. I still think $19.99 for 136 black and white pages is a bit much ­ even in hardcover ­ but this is a cool tale that goes down easily enough to be worth it. Grade: A-."
