You know how Harvey is. He meets this guy, the guy starts talking, and the next thing you know Harvey's figured out how to turn this guy's story into a nice short comics piece. Well, this time around, the guy Harvey ran into, named Michael Malice, really knew how to talk, but didn't know how to stop. Harvey related one of his stories -- "Fish Story" -- in Our Movie Year, but all the while Michael kept talking, and ended up telling Harvey so much about himself that Harvey -- with the ready, willing and able rendering of longtime collaborator Gary Dumm -- had no choice but to turn his tales into a full-length graphic novel! Here's a synopsis: "Ego & Hubris relates how, a year and a half after his birth in the Ukraine, Michael Malice moved with his parents to Brooklyn. He’s an intransigent kid, a hard-ass–both a demon to and demonized by the people who cross his path. His life is a constant struggle for validation in a world where the machine keeps trying to break him down. But Michael has a way with people . . . or rather, has a way of getting even with people. Hey, if you can’t live up to your parents’ expectations, at least you can live up to your name."
