At this year’s Small Press Expo in Bethesda, Secret Acres unveils Theo Ellsworth’s the Understanding Monster – Book Three, and reveals the all-new edition of Capacity.
The first book of the Understanding Monster trilogy was both a Best American Comics 2014 selection and a Lynd Ward Prize Honor Book. The highly anticipated third book completes Theo Ellworth’s epic adventure, which the New York Times calls “an urgent (and often very funny) attempt to explain a coocoo-rococo cosmology made up of garbled fragments of role-playing games, Transformers episodes, relaxation exercises and horror movies.”
Eleanor Davis, author of How to be Happy, writes:
“Theo Ellsworth’s comics don’t make normal sense; they make a sort of super-psychic sense. His stories are filled with pure terror, pure hope, and pure, weird, unwavering love.”
In the Understanding Monster – Book Three, our hero, Izadore, awakes to find his mind, body and soul reunited. The last Monks of the Imaginary Man lead him on a journey beyond Toy Mountain to discover the true nature of the relationship between creativity and reality.
Adding to the excitement, Theo Ellsworth’s classic, Capacity, will be re-released alongside theUnderstanding Monster Book Three. Returning for a third printing in a deluxe and unique stitched, softcover binding, a limited quantity of this new edition of Capacity will include a signed and numbered artist plate tipped into the book.
