Emmy award-winner and Eisner and Harvey Award nominee Dean Haspiel created Billy Dogma, illustrated for HBO’s Bored To Death, was a Master Artist at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, is a Yaddo fellow, a playwright, and is the co-founder of Hang Dai Editions. Haspiel’s comics include The Fox with Mark Waid, The Alcoholic with Jonathan Ames and The Quitter with Harvey Pekar. In Beef With Tomato (Alternative Comics), a native New York bruiser is fed up with life in the dregs of a drug-addled Alphabet City where his neighbors are shut-ins and his bicycle is always getting stolen. He escapes from Manhattan to make a fresh start in Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn, only to face a new strain of street logic—where most everything he encounters is not as it seems.
