This long-awaited rich graphic novel is a cross between Thomas Pynchon, Robert Altman and J.R.R. Tolkien and has earned Thurber raves from The Comics Journal, Vice and The Fader. 1-800 MICE is an anthropological study of the imaginary city of Volcano Park (where flying mouse couriers have replaced Federal Express), with a soap-opera fractured narrative and a cast of thousands. Over the course of the story readers meet: Peace Punk, a punker on the verge of bourgeois; Tom Chief: A beat cop with an identity crisis and Groomfiend, a daffy, if driven creature who directs the story.
