Product Description
 
An utterly unique take on the apocalyptic graphic novel from an Oscar-nominated animator, a cult classic finally available after the original edition quickly sold out.

Legendary animator Don Hertzfeldt is beloved for his wildly imaginative vision and understated, ironic sense of existential humor. His work has the ability to transcend its singular nature and tap into universal themes like mortality, nature, isolation, parenthood, and, naturally, the mutant apocalypse.

In his first and only book to date, written and drawn entirely on post-it notes, he uses deceptively simple, charming characters to bring to life a post-apocalyptic earth. This picaresque traipse through the end times is a visually striking work that includes a chase by mutants, a macabre human display in a modern art museum, and a hoped-for visit from the Easter Eel.

This is the perfect book for anyone who knows the apocalypse is imminent, and wants to laugh at it.An utterly unique take on the apocalyptic graphic novel from an Oscar-nominated animator, a cult classic finally available after the original edition quickly sold out.
