American Elf Book 4 The Collected Sketchbook Diaries Of James Kochalka January 1 2008 - December 31 2011 Paperback / softback
It's the long-awaited return of James Kochalka's massively influential anddeceptively ambitious autobiography, American Elf.
Every day of his lifeis captured in a single comic strip, sometimes profound and sometimes silly, butalways full of the earnest Kochalka passion that led Hi-Fructose to callhim "an unrelenting force, sure to solve the oncoming energy crisis," and earnedhim the title of Cartoonist Laureate of Vermont. And it's only gotten betterover time!In this collection, spanning the years 2008-2011, James becomes CartoonistLaureate, celebrates American Elf's 10th year, pitches a TV show toHollywood, releases a GameBoy album, travels to France, creates his own videogame, considers quitting the strip, plays everything from Lego Star Warsto Skyrim, digs deeper into his psyche, and kind of causes himself tohave a nervous breakdown.
Meanwhile, Eli starts elementary school - and aband, Oliver learns to walk and talk (and sing), James & Amy celebrate 15years of marriage, and the family adopts a new cat, Nooko!
