Overview

" True Swamp is a true classic. Melancholy frogs, awkward cross-species relationships, thoughtful discussions on the meaning of life and love and the possibility of kindness, and of course the ever-present need to eat and not be eaten. Jon Lewis has created a world so rich in detail and personality that once you've dipped your toe in the warm larvae-filled water, you won't want to leave. And to tell the truth, you never will. It's been nearly twenty years since I first read these stories and still they simmer away inside my brain, like a benevolent ink-borne parasite that burrows ever deeper, exposing strange new layers of wonder and insight in that crowded fertile swamp we call life."— Dylan Horrocks, Hicksville

True Swamp: Choose Your Poison collects the first storyline of this landmark series, telling the tale of Lenny the Frog—part coming-of-age story, part fantastic adventure, part gutter poetry. Unavailable for over a decade, this twentieth anniversary edition features meticulously restored art, never-reprinted material, an introduction by Charles Hatfield ( The Hand Of Fire: The Comics Art Of Jack Kirby ), and a foreword by Ed Brubaker ( Criminal , Captain America , Incognito ).

Jon Lewis began True Swamp in 1992. It continues today. Other comics include Ghost Ship , Spectacles , and scripts for DC, Dark Horse, and Kodansha Publishing. Lewis came to prominence as one of a tight-knit wave of early '90s Seattle cartoonists who brought new narrative ambition to alternative comics. He lives in Brooklyn, New York.
