by Kevin Smith
The preparation for Kevin Smith's Clerks II flick in August continues with the release of Tales from the Clerks Trade Paperback. Not only does this big-ass, 336 pages compilation collect all of Kevin's comic work from the Clerks, Chasing Dogma and Bluntman & Chronic books, but also includes two special treats. The 15-page, black & white mini-epic"Walt Flanagan's Dog" featuring the art of Matt Wagner, is reprinted for the first time ever. The icing on the cake though is a brand spanking-new, full-color story from Kevin with art by Jim Mahfood. "Where's the Beef" brings fans up to speed with the Randal and Dante they'll be seeing in Clerks II with the backstory of how they got the lucrative gig at the Mooby's restaurant. A more spine-tingling story has never been told! Also still available is The Mallrats Companion TP, featuring the complete script and tons of pics from the most-successful, critically panned picture ever! Get your copy today!
