Pterodactyl Hunters in the Gilded City, a Best American Comics selection and winner of the Xeric Award and Ignatz Award for Outstanding Comic, is a story of sibling rivalry and family tradition in a rapidly changing world: a version of 1904 New York where generations of working-class hot-air-balloonists take to the skies each night to defend their city from pterodactyls.

As Tom Hart, author of Rosalie Lightning, writes, Pterodactyl Hunters is “as good as any comic gets… a rich world you want to stay in, a real story that resonates.”

This is the North American debut of a bound edition of Leach’s book.
