Top Shelf And Troy Little Bring Us Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas In October

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.
