“Timeless strips from a master of the genre.” – Tom Tomorrow

Derf Backderf – creator of the graphic novels
Trashed, Punk Rock & Trailer Parks and the international bestseller My Friend Dahmer – presents the best of his True Stories from the long running The City comic strip, as seen in Best American Comics. It’s like Humans of New York, but somewhat stranger. Pressure... Pressure...

True Stories manages to entertain and amuse you the entire time.” – Dustin Cabeal, Comic Bastards

“Great, gritty stuff from an alt-weekly legend. It doesn’t get much realer than this.” – Jen Sorensen

“Who wouldn’t want reality served up through the bizarre, twisted lenses of Derf’s brain and drawing hand?
True Stories is the best way to experience the truth.” – Ruben Bolling

“Derf’s cartoons are the essential roadmap for America’s cultural landscape. Hardcore, caffeinated, and unforgiving.” – Shannon Wheeler

“Derf rules!” – Keith Knight

•Comics website

“Since switching his focus from newspaper strips to graphic novels in 2000, Backderf has transformed from a virtual unknown to a curiosity to an international star.”

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

“An immediately recogniz[able] visual style … surreal, satirical ennui.”

The Comics Journal

•American comics magazine

“[His] style is stretched-out, heavily-inked, almost primal illustrations of middle American life.”
