Troy Little's gonzo adaptation of Hunter Thompson's Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas is now available in an all-new format. Find out why GQ said "Little's cartoonish sensibilities make him the ideal artist to adapt Thompson's gonzo ur-text... perfectly portraying literature's most ridiculous road trip."
This comic book version is presented in black-and-white and at a slightly larger size than the full-color hardcover edition. Each issue also includes pages from Little's sketchbook and other behind-the-scenes information.
•  "[Little's] talents make him perfectly comfortable with the elastic expressions required to recreate the exploits of Thompson and his companion, Dr. Gonzo, as they slingshot between mania, paranoia, rage, and despair... the graphic-novel aspect adds layers to Thompson's prose." - Quill & Quire (starred review)
•  "Sheer expressiveness... captur[es] the sense of immediacy and paranoia that saturated the original's long, bad trip... it's a vivid insight into one of the most fascinatingly creative and unwaveringly troubled writers of his generation." - Publishers Weekly
•  "Raoul Duke and his Samoan attorney, Dr. Gonzo, come screaming into Las Vegas, searching for the American dream, destined to find only its charred remains... [Troy] Little fits the sensibility of the original comfortably into comics form." - Booklist
