New Graphic Novel COSMIC DETECTIVE by Lemire, Kindt & Rubin now live on KICKSTARTER!

Some news! For the last two years I've been working in secret on a brand new graphic novel with Matt Kindt and David Rubin...COSMIC DETECTIVE! It's now live on Kickstarter. Matt and I have decided to go back to our roots, just like when we first met each other and became friends at small press expos in the early 2000's. We will be self-publishing the book and hope you will consider backing us! All Read more of this blog post »

“There's only two ways to be completely alone in this world, lost in a crowd or in total isolation...”
Jeff Lemire, Essex County, Vol. 2: Ghost Stories

“They say the city gets in your blood, but that's crap. The city doesn't become part of you... you become part of it. It soaks you up bit by bit, year after year. Until you're just a tiny part of its system... Pumping through its veins, lost in its arteries.”
Jeff Lemire, Essex County, Vol. 2: Ghost Stories

“Sometimes at night, when I wake up real late, I can hear my dad talking to God. He whispers, but I still hear him.
I even hear him crying sometimes, when God says something sad.”
Jeff Lemire, Sweet Tooth, Volume 1: Out of the Deep Woods
