A new edition of Clowes' classic, unsettling and iconic graphic novel

Originally published in 1993, Like A Velvet Glove Cast in Iron was Daniel Clowes's first long-form graphic novel and was heralded as an instant classic that exists firmly in the canon of great graphic novels.

Disturbing, funny and surreal, it tells the story of a young man, Clay Loudermilk, who stumbles into a screening of a bizarre snuff film that wraps him up in a mystery surrounding a series of cult-inspired killings, dubbed 'The Harun Scarum Murders.'

The subsequent path Loudermilk's life takes is both a terrifying journey into madness and jaw-dropping tour-de-force of visual imagination fraught with psychosexual and conspiratorial tension. In the wake of Clowes' 2016 smash hit Patience, and on the eve of the release of the adaption of his graphic novel Wilson (Fox), Fantagraphics is proud to present this new edition of Like A Velvet Glove Cast in Iron, featuring a new wraparound painted cover by the artist.
