THE LODGER by Karl Stevens

“After losing his girlfriend and hip Boston apartment, Karl Stevens moves into a spare room in his painting professor’s home, where his bohemian adventures in sex and boozing converge with the rituals of life with a family and an unruly beagle named Cookie. In a series of humorous, poignant, and gorgeously rendered stories, The Lodger chronicles a tumultuous year in the life of the author as he grows as an artist and a man. Combining comic strips originally published in The Phoenix, Boston’s leading alternative weekly, with exquisite watercolors and oil paintings, The Lodger [is] a penetrating and visually stunning depiction of love, loss, and the moving minutiae of everyday life. A Los Angeles Times Book Prize finalist.” Stevens is an impeccable, wholly unique comics artist, and The Lodger comes highly recommended. One of my favorite books of 2010. 96 page softcover, 8.5″ x 11″, full color throughout. (KSA Publishing)
