Follow the adventures of the lovable and dim-witted sasquatch, Charles Christopher, as he ventures out of the Cedar Forest in search of his past. Rounded out by a colourful cast of characters, including an escaped circus bear, a henpecked bird and a rambunctious young fox, The Abominable Charles Christopher is equal parts hilarious and melancholy. Collects the first chapter of the Eisner Award-winning webcomic.

About the Author:

Karl Kerschl is a Canadian author and illustrator, best known for his work on Superman, The Flash, Deadpool, Spider-Man, Teen Titans and Wonder Woman. He co-created and illustrated the hit YA series Gotham Academy for DC Comics. His ongoing webcomic, The Abominable Charles Christopher, won the Eisner Award for Best Webcomic in 2011.


I'm not sure of the best way to describe The Abominable Charles Christopher. To say it's like an unholy mash-up of Walt Kelly, Jeff Smith and Sumerian Mythology is true, but it misses the point completely. It is its own thing, and it does what comics do best: make a world and draw you into it. --Neil Gaiman

The Abominable Charles Christopher is pure comics magic. It somehow manages to be whimsical, sad and human all at once. Kerschl's cartooning is elegant and gorgeous. This is a beautiful book! --Jeff Lemire

Tales with animal characters have a way of exploring humanity better than those with upright homo sapiens. Karl Kerschl's stories of a simple yeti and the animal inhabitants of his wooded home raise not only the bar for storytelling in comics, but also for animal stories previously told by Mr. Kipling, Mr. Grahame, and even old Aesop himself. --David Petersen
