Alec: How to be an Artist

by Eddie Campbell

2001

"Chapter Fourteen"

When originally printed by Eddie Campbell Comics in 2001, Alec: How to be an Artist ended with a "Chapter Fourteen". In Top Shelf's 2009 omnibus, the chapter was replaced by a shorter and more sardonic postscript. The loss did no structural damage to the book, particularly in its new context; with its five page grid of cover image thumbnails, it had always felt a bit appended.

Reading list aside, though, the original ending had its charm, and Campbell has kindly agreed to let it be reproduced here.
