Hunter S. Thompson's work is coming to the comic book world thanks to Top Shelf Productions! I'm talking about a Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas graphic novel. Being one of Top Shelf's most-anticipated new projects, Hunter S. Thompson's brilliant work is being released in a full color hardcover this October. Adapted by Troy Little, this book is sure to fly off the shelves. Manic pre-orders are equally likely.
Troy Little masterfully captures the madness and essential humor that makes this book an enduring classic.
John Layman (Chew) added:
Pre-ether binge reading material. Glorious madness, as mercilessly demented as its original counterpart. The Good Doctor would look on this and raise his highball glass in hearty approval.
I'm a huge fan of writers like Hunter S. Thompson who made their mark on the world by following their intuition as writers and being crazy about it. I am also a huge fan of all things Johnny Depp, who added so much of his passion to the film version. I'm thinking this is definitely a great gift for one of those "I'm not into comics" people (we all have them in our lives.) It's a great example of how well things can transition into comic book form.
