The 1997 Harvey Award nominated debut of cartoonist Ed Brubaker's new series, Detour, promises to be a landmark for this acclaimed creator as he explores exciting new directions. Featured in this first issue is "Life on the Fault Line" about a man who struggles with his hated roommates and the dystopian world around him as he tries vainly to cling to his moral standards. This hilarious black comedy seamlessly blends the real and the unreal to concoct a frightening vision of the not too distant future.
Ed Brubaker's work on his popular series Lowlife as well as his projects for DC's Vertigo and Dark Horse have garnered him Harvey and Eisner Award nominations and a lot of critical acclaim over the years. Brubaker's At The Seams earned him an Ignatz Award nomination for outstanting collection.
Now Brubaker breaks through to a new level as both the art and writing in this new series are a big leap forward from his previous work as he progresses from the autobiographical to a lot more exploratory fiction. "It will have all of the elements that people loved about Lowlife but will have a lot more going on behind the scenes, a lot more humor, and a lot more experimentation," says creator Brubaker, "try to imagine if Buddy Bradley were written by Philip K. Dick."
is an ongoing comic book series with issue two shipping in 2000 from Alternative
