Winner of the Harvey & Ignatz Awards for Best Graphic Novel. "Indie Book of the Year"-- Wizard Magazine "Most indie film should be this good."-- Entertainment Weekly "A master of the slice-of-life indie comic genre."-- Publishers Weekly "A drama and a thriller that plays to the real strength of the medium."-- Variety "Carefully and cleverly structured. Such an accomplishment is no easy trick."-- Time "If Brian Bendis is comics' David Mamet, and Grant Morrison its David Cronenberg, then Alex Robinson is its Robert Altman."-- Matt Singer, The Village Voice "Brilliant Robinson's work has the potential to appeal to comics fans who don't normally read "alternative"comics and to readers who normally avoid comics entirely. Highly recommended."-- Library Journal "I've read a lot of excellent graphic novels this year, but I haven't read a better one than Tricked. A wonderful piece of work about life and the mistakes we make and the demons that drive us."-- Heidi MacDonald, Comics Buyer's Guide Alex Robinson, "the master of true-to-life relationship drama"(Library Journal), has created another tour de force. Tricked follows the lives of six people -- a reclusive rock legend, a heartbroken waitress, a counterfeiter, an obsessive crank, a lost daughter, and a frustrated lover -- whose lives are unconnected until an act of violence brings them spiraling in on each other. Combining intriguing characters with a story structure that is both complex and innovative, Tricked is not to be missed. Now in an all-new hardcover edition with a brand new cover to boot!

Tricked has the greatest plot of any graphic novel I've read. It's probably the closest you can come to reading a full-length movie. Highly recommended. Read full review

Alex RObinson is very good at both writing and art...to be so good at both these things is pretty damned impressive. His characters have a cartoon form but wonderful three dimensionality. This is a ... Read full review
