Between 1997 and 2006, countless comic strips poured out of cartoonist Stephen Emond's room in the shape of "STEVERINO!," the tale of a sad-sack hopeless romantic and his quest for that special anyone. "STEVERINO!" was printed and sent out as a self-published 25 page book each month and eventually went on to gain praise and correspondance from syndicate editors, win national prizes, and a earned a space in local Connecticut shoreline newspapers. Read this book and see the mountains of effort that go into shaping a series and perfecting an idea. From what works to what doesn't, from rejection letters to editor feedback and the applications of that feedback, documented here is the true evolution of a cartoonist! Emond is the author of EMO BOY and HAPPYFACE, and as those books and STEVERINO! will show, he lays it all out in the open in his intensely personal works. Witness a decade of heart and devotion, the rise and fall of STEVERINO.
