This is the candid, uncensored and utterly unofficial of story of DC Comic's infamous Vertigo UK office, written by one who was the heart of the drug-fuelled, creative whirlwind. It's the odyssey of one comic fan in pursuit of his dream job, becoming the first British member of the DC editorial staff, and learning the harsh realities of publishing life. Along the way he meets celebrities including Paul Gambaccini, Jonathan Ross, The Spice Girls, Blur, Adam Ant, and many, many more. Revealing the crazy, halcyon days of the British comics publishing in the mid-Nineties, it blows the lid off the debauchery and excess that was part and parcel of the industry. But when you reach such dizzy heights, there's only one place to go...

De los pocos libros de no-ficción que he leído. Tiene información muy relevante a mis intereses, pues habla de los años de formación de DC Vértigo (mi sello favorito de cómics mientras vivió), y de anécdotas de autores que yo admiro mucho. Sin embargo está contado desde el punto de vista de un fanboy convertido en asistente editorial no muy interesante en lo particular como individuo, y hay mucho desperdicio de historias personales y puntos de vista que a nadie le importan (perdóname Tim Pilcher). Al autor carece de gracia y simpatía, y se nota en su narración. Por momentos suena más a un name dropping de un fan de cómics cliché que a otra cosa.
