Summary "A stunning graphic debut: the life of the legendary silent-film actor Lon Chaney (the original Phantom of the Opera and Hunchback of Notre Dame), as imagined by an artist whose work recalls the style and skill of early-era New Yorker cartoonists. From the artist: " 'No one will ever love me!' I believe it was this near-universal fear that makes Lon Chaney's characters continue to resonate with us today. On their surface, most of them are distinctly unlikeable: they are monsters, outcasts, criminals. Butthrough his unique magic, Chaney makes them empathetic. He pioneered the craft of make-up artist long before that term ever existed, and he used his expertise to hide himself from public view--what if nobody loved him?""-- Provided by publisher.
