The greatest love story every told has finally been released in graphic novel form. This epic cult-phenomenon created by Tom Neely's art-fraternity The Igloo Tornado features comics, gags, short stories and more about the domestic life of "Henry" and "Glenn" and sometimes their neighbors "Daryl" and "John." The original book by the four members of Igloo Tornado was followed by a second volume "Forever & Ever" edited by Tom Neely and includes over 50 artists doing their own takes on this power-couple. Order both the original and the second book from www.microcosmpublishing.com

Tom Neely's first graphic novel was self-published in 2007 and won an Ignatz Award for "Promising New Talent." A nearly-wordless, surrealistic tale about a man plagued by a giant blot of ink that slowly consumes his life.

In 2010 Tom Neely created a mini-comic called Doppelgänger in which a character named "döpeye" has an existential crisis and beats himself up for several pages. Oddly enough this little project got Neely the job drawing actual Popeye Comics for the IDW series written by Roger Langridge. Neely did pencils, inks, lettering and colors on the complete issue #3, as well as the Sappo back-up stories in issues #2 and #4.
