Matt Kindt Tells More Tall Tales at Dark Horse
Dark Horse is pleased to announce an Expanded Edition of 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man from New York Times bestselling graphic novelist Matt Kindt! 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man (Expanded Edition) is a decades-spanning tale of love, secrets, aging, espionage, and family set in the same universe as Kindt’s other creations Dept. H and MIND MGMT. In 2009, Dark Horse released 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man to great critical acclaim. This beautiful first installment was followed by 3 Story: Secret Files of the Giant Man, which provided fans a more in-depth look at Craig Pressgang’s early spy adventures.
3 Story is a modern fable that explores the life of a giant man, Craig Pressgang, whose strange medical condition causes continuous growth. Told by the three women who knew him best, 3 Story follows Craig’s amazing journey from birth to his eventual three-story height. 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man (Expanded Edition) collects 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man and 3 Story: Secret Files of the Giant Man. Craig Pressgang’s life is well documented in his official CIA biography, Giant Man: Pillar of America, but the heroic picture it paints is only half the story. The continuous growth caused by Craig’s strange gigantism brings a variety of problems as he becomes more isolated and unknowable.
3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man TPB (Expanded Edition) goes on sale August 1, 2018, and is available for preorder on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and at your local comic shop. This 208-page collection retails for $19.99.
