Ah Pook is Here: Graphic Novel

Following on the heels of Eric Drooker and Allen Ginsberg’s  Howl and Illuminated Poems, is William S. Burroughs’ foray into the world of the graphic novel is set to be made public by Fantagraphics Books. It should be released in the summer of 2011.

In the 1970s, before the term “graphic novel” was coined, Burroughs and artist Malcolm McNeill collaborated on Ah Pook is Here. It was originally a comic strip in a magazine called Cyclops, but after the magazine went bust, they set about turning it into a full length work.

For more details see the Fantagraphics Books website.
