Seabrook's Asylum

William Seabrook has inexplicably been out of print for years. Thankfully, Dover Publications is remedying that, starting with a new edition of Asylum, Seabrook's true account of his stay in a mental hospital to cure his late-stage alcoholism.

I may have mentioned I'm working away at a graphic novel based on Seabrook's life and I'm excited that I'll be doing the cover for this new Dover edition of Asylum and will be writing an introduction in comic strip form for the book.

This is what the cover's looking like so far. And below that, are some of the roughs.

Asylum is one of the best of Seabrook's late career books. You should read this when it comes out!
