Shannon Wheeler’s Next Book

Too Much Coffee Man: The Before Years, out March 2020, is the latest from Mr. Wheeler who began contributing to The New Yorker in 2009. About the book, from the publisher, Dark Horse Books:

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!
