A 10-Page Preview Of Top Shelf's New Graphic Novel The Fun Family

Top Shelf is bringing The Fun Family to comic shops this June. The story by Benjamin Frisch is a funny, haunting and though-provoking deconstruction of an American art form, the suburban family comic strip.

Beloved cartoonist Robert Fun has earned a devoted following for his circle-shaped newspaper comic strip, celebrating the wholesome American family by drawing inspiration from his real home life… but the Fun Family bears some dark secrets. As their idyllic world collapses and the kids are forced to pick up the pieces, can they escape the cycle of art imitating life imitating art? In his debut graphic novel, Benjamin Frisch presents a surreal deconstruction of childhood, adulthood, and good old American obsession. — a full-color softcover graphic novel with French flaps, 240 pages, 6.5" x 9.25"
