Just in time for Christmas (or the War on Christmas), comes the SIXTH Candorville collection: RUN! (Vampires, Werewolves, “The One That Got Away” and Other Demons). This is the largest collection to date, with 800+ comics.

INSIDE:In the fifth collection of the syndicated newspaper comic strip Candorville, by Darrin Bell, Lemont’s new success as the Chronicle’s Senior White House Correspondent may be short-lived; as a startling revelation about his evil fiancee propels him and Dr. Noodle on a hilariously perilous journey to the heart of Mexico, where they face bloodthirsty demons, vampires, werewolves, and drug cartels.

At home, in honor of the 1st black President, C-Dog summons the ghost of Richard Pryor for advice on how to stop saying the “N” word. He finds himself on the run, impersonating Lemont on his book tour to hide from the insanely huge brother of a girl he’s wronged. And as Susan makes a life-altering pact with her backstabbing assistant, Lemont travels back in time to the Hammer-Time Nineties to help his younger self seduce “The One That Got Away.”

Candorville, which has been called “this generation’s Doonesbury,” appears in over 100 papers. This 204-page large-format book contains over 800 comics and it’s been scientifically proven that it’ll take more than a year to read, if you only read it when you’re in the bathroom!
