Copra Round One collects the first six issues of Copra, the self-published comic book by Brooklyn based cartoonist Michel Fiffe.
Since November of 2012, Michel Fiffe has been single-handedly writing, drawing and publishing Copra, a 22 page monthly comic book. Thanks to great word-of-mouth responses and multiple positive reviews, the first several issues of Copra have each sold out of multiple printings, making it difficult for new readers, retailers, and curiosity seekers to check the series out. Park Slope’s favorite comic book shop, Bergen Street, jumps into the publishing game with this book. Copra Round One is the perfect jumping on point for a series whose popularity shows no sign of slowing down.
“The end result is that it blends into some genuinely masterful storytelling that engages the reader on every level. In a note on the back cover, Fiffe says that he wanted his approach to comics to be “exuberant, direct, fun” and like the man said,, it ain’t bragging if it’s true. It’s good stuff.” — Chris Sims, Comics Alliance
“In short, this is the most fun and excitement I’ve gotten out of a comic book in a long time. If this was the kind of stuff your average superhero or action comic was made up of, I can’t help but think that the industry would be in a slightly better state than it is.” — Jeppe, Filth and Fabulations
144 page full-color paperback.
