Title: The King's Highway


 I stood and read this book and laughed, laughed, laughed and LAUGHED. These are simple comics but hilariously executed.  For a good laugh open this book!

— From Cheri


Philosophers, bugs, and bears Horses, cats, and teachers of English These are just a few of the hilarious inhabitants populating Dicus's The King's Highway. The King's Highway is a stretch of road in south Brooklyn that, as Dicus imagines it, runs out of the borough in both directions until it has ringed around the globe, traveling through every conceivable life. Travel this road long enough and the extraordinary may become absurd, the absurd extraordinary. Maybe this says something profound about humanity? Or, perhaps, it's a little tragic? Whatever the case, in The King's Highway, cartoonist-philosopher Dicus notes with a scrupulous gaze, wry wit, a touch of empathy, and a whole lot of honesty just where he has been and what he has seen on his journeys. Here is a cartoonist who expected a road lined with royalty. Instead, he has confronted the oddities and peculiarities existing right next to us all along The King's Highway.

About the Author

Dicus grew up in Nevada, but he's lived in Chicago, Wyoming, Oklahoma, and New York, where he currently lives with his wife and two kids. His kids are actually cats. In case that makes you sad, one of the cats' names is Dennis, and Dennis doesn't know how to meow. Dicus is a professor of books nobody reads, but it took him decades to learn how to spell medieval.
