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.
