Top Shelf and Troy Little To Adapt Hunter S. Thompson

Posted by May 27, 2015 Comment

What were we doing out here…? What was the meaning of this trip? Did I actually have a big red convertible out there on the street? Was I just roaming around these Mint Hotel escalators in a drug frenzy of some kind, or had I really come out here to Las Vegas to work on a story? — Hunter S. Thompson, Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Top Shelf will be publishing a comic adaptation of legendary journalist Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas. Taking on the task of bringing the genius blend of reality and fiction to the comic world is Eisner-nominated artist Troy Little (Chiaroscuro).

The original book, subtitled A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream follows Thompson analogue Raoul Duke and his attorney Dr. Gonzo go on the mother of all Vegas benders while covering a motorcycle race and crashing a drug-enforcement convention… all while high as a kite.

The graphic novel is scheduled for release October 2015 from Top Shelf and IDW Publishing.
