| YURKOVICH'S FIRST-EVER trade-paperback collection stars the super-heroes of THRESHOLD, a Philadelphia-based crime-fighting quartet
more interested in tapping into the ingredients of cheesecake than the workings of the criminal mind.
In the latter half of the 1990s, Yurkovich was considered by many industry reviewers as the "king of quirky comics," mixing absurdist notions
and offbeat humor into otherwise "mainstream" tales of super-heroism and humanism.
Now, Top Shelf Productions, publishers of Craig Thompson's BLANKETS and Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell's award-winning FROM HELL,
has collected the first four wildly popular and hard-to-find issues of THRESHOLD, to be published under the title LESS THAN HEROES, Volume
1. But don't expect just a simple reprinting of the original stories when you buy your copy. Yurkovich spent three months cleaning and, in many
instances, reworking much of the original art, and incorporating script edits, to make this first collection not merely a retrospective, but the
definitive edition of these early tales from what ABC's PRIME-TIME WEEKEND has dubbed the "Yurkovich Universe." LESS THAN HEROES,
Volume 1 special features include a series of short THRESHOLD tales as well as an expanded version of Yurkovich's controversial essay,
WHY DON'T HEROES AGE?
