Dark Horse Publishes Notes on a Case of Melancholia, or: A Little Death in March

Death arrives in this darkly humorous and brilliantly illustrated tale created by Nicholas Gurewitch, author of The Perry Bible Fellowship AlmanackNotes on a Case of Melancholia, or: A Little Death is a tale of fatherhood, death, and psychoanalysis. Dark Horse’s updated edition of Gurewitch’s wildly successful Kickstarter project is set to go on sale in March 2020. 

In Notes on a Case of Melancholia, or: A Little Death, Death becomes a patient of a recently-bereaved psychoanalyst. The topic of discussion? His frolicsome child, who has no apparent interest in grim-reaping! Featuring an unfathomable number of lines which have been hand-chiseled into inked clay, this labor of love by Nicholas Gurewitch invokes the morbid humor of his comic strip, The Perry Bible Fellowship, and the spooky silent-film qualities of the late Edward Gorey.

Notes on a Case of Melancholia, or: A Little Death goes on sale in comic shops on March 18, 2020 and in bookstores on March 31, 2020, and is available for pre-order. This 48-page hardcover retails for $19.99. Dark Horse is also publishing The Perry Bible Fellowship Almanack: 10th Anniversary Edition in January 2020. 

The Perry Bible Fellowship Almanack is Getting a 10th Anniversary Edition

Dark Horse is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of Nicholas Gurewitch’s Ignatz, Harvey, and Eisner Award-winning comic series with a new edition for fans to enjoy. Described by Matt Inman as “the best thing to happen to cartooning since Calvin and Hobbes,” The Perry Bible Fellowship is a keystone in the bridge between newspaper comics and webcomics. 

The Perry Bible Fellowship Almanack: 10th Anniversary Edition is a newly formatted 7” x 10”, which features every Perry Bible Fellowship comic strip which ran in alternative newspapers between 2004 and 2007—and simultaneously exploded online during the internet’s golden age! In commemoration of 10 years since its initial printing, this Almanack also contains content that is unavailable anywhere else, including previously undiscovered PBF comics from the era and numerous sketches for comics that never came to be. 

The hardcover goes on sale in comic stores on November 6, 2019, and will be available in book stores on November 19, 2019. This new hardcover edition is 256-pages of hilarity and retails for $24.99.
