At last, David Collier's most popular and well-received work, his comic book biographies, is being collected together in one complete book! "Portraits From Life" presents Collier's fascinating look at the lives of six individuals, from "Grey Owl" (recently made into a Hollywood film) to the recent "David Milgaard" story, about a man wrongfully accused of a brutal rape and murder. Also: "The Ethel Catherwood Story", about an eccentric early 20th century Olympic champion; "Humphry Osmond", a compelling look at the man who coined the term "psychedelic"; and, finally, a look at the early exploits of Richard Collier, the artist's grandfather.
Find out why R. Crumb and Chris Ware consider Collier among the most interesting cartoonists working today!
