(W) Tim Hensley (A/CA) Tim Hensley
Brilliant cartoonist Tim Hensley (Wally Gropius) returns with his first new comic book since the acclaimed "Sir Alfred No. 3" in 2015! This is a gorgeous, oversized one-shot comic magazine (there is no Detention No. 1 -- it's a joke, folks!) strictly limited to 2000 copies and available only through the direct market! Hensley "adapts" in his own absurdist fashion an acknowledged classic of American literature, "Maggie: A Girl of the Streets" by Stephen Crane into a 44-page, oversized, full-color comic book titled "Detention No. 2." Crane's 1893 novella tells the story of Maggie, a Bowery waif on the cusp of maturity who becomes tragically embroiled with a barkeep named Pete. Hensley satirically frames his version of this brutal tale of slum life as a study aide à la Classics Illustrated, created for those being punished by remedial instruction.
