Overview

  • It's the long-awaited return of James Kochalka's massively influential and deceptively ambitious autobiography, American Elf. Every day of his life is captured in a single comic strip, sometimes profound and sometimes silly, but always full of the earnest Kochalka passion that led Hi-Fructose to call him "an unrelenting force, sure to solve the oncoming energy crisis," and earned him the title of Cartoonist Laureate of Vermont. And it's only gotten better over time!
  • In this collection, spanning the years 2008-2011, James becomes Cartoonist
    Laureate, celebrates American Elf's 10th year, pitches a TV show to
    Hollywood, releases a GameBoy album, travels to France, creates his own video game, considers quitting the strip, plays everything from Lego Star Wars
    to Skyrim, digs deeper into his psyche, and kind of causes himself to have a nervous breakdown. Meanwhile, Eli starts elementary school — and a band, Oliver learns to walk and talk (and sing), James & Amy celebrate 15
    years of marriage, and the family adopts a new cat, Nooko!

Meet the Author


James Kochalka is the first Cartoonist Laureate of Vermont. That's kind of like being the state flower, but even better! He's the author and illustrator of several popular children's book series, including Johnny Boo, Dragon Puncher, and The Glorkian Warrior. Dragon Puncher Island won an Eisner award in 2012 for "Best Publication for Early Readers", but he's also won the Harvey award and four Ignatz awards for his books for adults.
