Eddie Campbell self-published his first graphic novel in 1975,
long before anyone knew it was okay to do that sort of thing. In the
next twenty years, he continued to tell his stories by whatever means
were available to him, whether that be photocopied stripzines, strips
in newspapers, short pieces in magazines, long chapters in an irregular
periodical, and even regular American-style comic book pamphlets.
Since 1995, he's been combining these techniques with a return to
self-publishing his own graphic novels. Currently available from Eddie
Campbell Comics are three volumes of his influential autobiographical
series ALEC, eight of the mythological satire BACCHUS, and the
multi-award-winning FROM HELL, now a big Hollywood wank.
The remainder of 2002 should see the first autobiographical book not
to bear the ALEC rubric, the final two volumes of the BACCHUS saga, and
the launch of a new magazine, Eddie Campbell's EGOMANIA.
