Winner of the Eisner Award for Talent Deserving Wider Recognition, the International Comics Festival Award for Best Debut Graphic Novel (Angouleme, France), and voted by Wizard Magazine as the best indy graphic novel of all time.

"A convincing, absorbing and satisfying fictional portrait of post-college life in New York City." — Publishers Weekly

"A salute to comics, an exploration of the human condition, and a solid, absorbing, and riotously snide tale about at least half of the things that make life important." — Tasha Robinson, The AV Club

"Box Office Poison is a novel complex enough to provoke Book Talk. I even marked panels with post-it notes as I was reading so that I'd remember to show them to my friends." — Kelly Sue DeConnick, Artbomb.com

"The comic book equivalent of the world's best pineapple upside-down cake: layer upon layer of rich dramatic goodness." — Matthew Craig, Robotfist.com

"Box Office Poison is to the comic book culture as Almost Famous is to that of rock and roll." — Chris Tamarri, The Daily Targum

This 608-page epic story of Sherman, Dorothy, Ed, Stephen, Jane, and Mr. Flavor is a true comics masterpiece. Alex Robinson's completely natural and inspiring knack for dialogue makes this story of dreary jobs, comic books, love, sex, messy apartments, girlfriends (and the lack thereof), undisclosed pasts, and crusty old professionals one of the most delightful and whimsical graphic novels to hit the stands in years.
