Shannon Wheeler's Too Much Coffee Man Gets An Origin Story

The origin of Too Much Coffee Man is revealed for the first time in this new confessional graphic novel by cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, to be published in November by Dark Horse Comics.

Featuring decades of strips and comics with new sequential work connecting and commenting on each era, Wheeler analyzes formative periods in his life as a creator. College-era strips early in his cartooning career are mixed with new stories and gag comics to create a narrative arc that leads to Wheeler's work on Postage Stamp Funnies and Villain House! Fans of Wheeler and the art of cartooning will enjoy this super-caffeinated collection detailing the origin of his most famous creation and his journey from cartooning for free for college papers to making a bit more money at The Onion, and ultimately making just a little bit more at The New Yorker–the apex job for a cartoonist!
