True Story is an illustrated collection of short memoirs. A compendium of stories submitted by everyday people, edited, illustrated—and occasionally exaggerated—by comic artist Mike Holmes. Holmes presents more than 100 comics in his familiar style, bringing middle school embarrassments, near-death experiences, bad dates, and first kisses to life on the page. With behind-the-scenes details, comments and followups from past contributors, and special guest storytellers from the world of comics and comedy, True Story is engaging, funny, and proof that everyone’s got a story to tell.
Mike Holmes is an author and illustrator working in Halifax. He’s produced a number of graphic novels and has a weekly comic strip, True Story. This American Drive is Holmes’s first book, and his first piece of published non-fiction.
