Shannon Wheeler is an ambitious cartoonist who turned a minicomic character into a long-running newspaper strip, Eisner-winning comic book series, Converse shoe commercial, one of the first webcomics, and an opera. His dedication includes hand-stapling 20,000+ mini-comics and shooting 3,000+ comics with a .22 rifle. It's been a 20+ year adventure with Too Much Coffee Man.
The semi-autobiographical, hyper-intellectual, high-concept comic appeals to both inside and outside the comic book world. Even Henry Rollins says Too Much Coffee Man is “the only comic I would really pay attention to, because I like the idea. Too Much Coffee Man has a lot to say. He's a great apocalyptic philosopher for our very troubled times.” Holy crap. That’s Henry Rollins.
The Too Much Coffee Man Omnibus, at over 500 pages, was a pain in the ass to put together. It was solicited and cancelled multiple times - becoming one of the most anticipated books around. Many editors were fired and a few of them went insane. Wheeler said “I stopped going to conventions and slept in my closet because too many people asked me about the Too Much Coffee Man Omnibus.” Wheeler is once again making public appearances. The book is real, it is in stores, weighs as much as a small child, and it’s getting attention.
Too Much Coffee Man Omnibus collects five books previously published by Dark Horse:
- Too Much Coffee Man: Parade of Tirade
- Too Much Coffee Man: Guide for the Perplexed
