The brilliant cartoonist Tim Hensley is a friend of the store whose work we greatly admire. He kindly signed his books for us.
From the publisher:
Behind the bonhomie, his "British touch," and his legendary films adored by the entire planet, Alfred Hitchcock turns out to have been in turn miserable, dangerous, mean, insensitive, obsessed, mad, and often screaming with laughter and/or dread. Master cartoonist Tim Hensley (Wally Gropius, Detention #2) paints a satiric and oblique portrait in this oversized one-shot (there is no Sir Alfred #1 or 2) that somehow informs the reader more about Hitchcock than most conventional history.
In Sir Alfred No. 3, Hensley turns the life of the film director Alfred Hitchcock into 65 comic strips, most of which employ the look of Little Lulu comic books. Ken Parille of The Comics Journal calls the book an "oblique biography", where some of Hensley's strips play it straight while with others he chooses to expand, compress, or combine incidents which amplify the comedy and perversion of the director's life.
