Notes: The often-overlooked first edition, published in a reported 500 copies for sale at comics conventions in July 2003, with a different cover design than the trade edition released to bookstores in late August.

The book, an "illustrated novel", is an autobiographical account of a Christian boy who grows up, falls in love, and loses his faith. It is included on virtually all lists of the best graphic novels and it won Eisner and Harvey awards in several categories. It is a true graphic novel, written as a single book and not serialized in comic books.

This correct first edition is rather uncommon. 582, [10] pages. Black and white. 6-3/4 by 9-3/4 inches.

Edition + Condition: First edition (states "First Printing. July 2003." on the copyright page). A fine copy in illustrated paper-covered boards with minor bumping to the spine. This copy is inscribed by Thompson, "For James, yours—Craig. 07-17-03," with a decorative ink stamp Thompson made for the purpose.

Publication: Marietta, GA: Top Shelf Productions, 2003.
