Kyle Baker‘s I Die At Midnight was a slim 64 caper comic published at the turn of the millennium and coming as it did after the wonderful Cowboy Wally Show and the even more sublime Why I Hate Saturn (both criminally out of print) it was rather undervalued.
But it’s a fantastically funny manic rush through New York by a man trying to find the antidote to the bottle of pills he just taken following his breakup with his girlfriend. And wouldn’t you know it, she’s changed her mind and he has just a short time to race across New York with his girlfriend in tow, all the while desperately trying not to let on to what he’s doing. Hilarious slapstick all done in Baker’s intense, computerised style.
Well, now it’s all online for you to read. Enjoy:
