What started out loosely as a group of friends hanging around in San Francisco coffee shops on Sunday afternoons, Hickee has become a major contributor to the underground comics scene. Initiated by Grickle creator Graham Annable, he knew that the humorous talents of this gang could find a larger audience through comics. Hickee is the vehicle that ties all their Sunday afternoon sessions together -- stories that emerge from doodles or from musings about life -- resulting in a raw comic book. No censoring, no test audience, and no laugh track. Made to entertain themselves, Hickee will undoubtedly draw you into their world and provide lots of laughs along the way. One of the most exciting new anthologies today!
Graham Annable is the award winning animator, editor, story artist, and cartoonist behind the Grickle books, Stickleback, and Hickee anthology from Alternative Comics. When he's not swamped by his day job in Portland, Oregon, he stays up late making comics.. Contact Graham at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.grickle.com.
