    KINGS IN DISGUISE by JAMES VANCE and DAN BURR (1988).

    Hands down, one of the finest graphic novels ever created. Highly praised by top professionals like Will Eisner, Art Spiegleman, Gil Kane and Harvey Kurtzman and praised by Publishers Weekly as "one of the top trade paperbacks of 1990," long before graphic novels gained general respectability. Kings in Disguise is a coming-of-age story set against the Great Depression as a 12-year old boy, Freddie Bloch, sets across America to find the alcoholic father who abandoned his family. Along the way Freddie discovers another America, one populated by hobo jungles, violent strikes and Hoovervilles, learns about himself, and finds a surrogate father while hopping freight trains.

    Powerfully told by James Vance and evocatively illustrated by Dan Burr. Winner of multiple Eisner and Harvey Awards. Kings was translated overseas in 2004 in three countries: Italy (for the second time), Sweden and France, but, sadly, remains out of print in America.We can't endorse this one strongly enough. Published by Kitchen Sink Press.

    We have the deluxe signed & number hardcover edition, autographed on a special mplate by both authors. Limited to 1,000 copies. Long out of print.
