Luke is depressed, afflicted by a severe case of metaphoritis and deadlines that don’t really exist.

Afraid of being forgotten by the comics community and unable to find motivation in anything besides jealousy, he sets out to create an award-winning comic that will remedy all of his problems.

Exploring art and existence through worlds of words and numbers both real and imagined, Luke Healy’s new graphic novel includes the Ignatz Award and Slate Cartoonist Studio Prize nominated story The Unofficial Cuckoo’s Nest Study Companion.

“A graphic novel that somehow simultaneously manages to be entertainingly self-indulgent and carefully insightful it’s a book that will no doubt both underline Luke Healy’s status as one of the most exciting newer prospects in comics.” – Broken Frontier

“This is the rare meta work of art that finds a way out of its own maze and encourages the reader to do so as well..”
The Comics Journal

“Entertainingly knotty and acidly funny…a clever and curiously haunting book.”
Publishers Weekly
