A one-of-a-kind collaboration between legends of art and comedy, thought to be lost to history.
Appeals to anyone who loves classic comedy, 20th century art, graphic novels, history, or biography.
Featuring comedy by Tim Heidecker (Tim & Eric), an award-winning comedian, writer, and actor.
Bold and colorful art with Daliesque visuals, classic Marx Brothers antics, and a touch of Old Hollywood. It’s like watching a movie in a book!
Along with the graphic novel, which takes up about 2/3 of the book, an illustrated frame story provides context, explaining the real-world events that made this historic collaboration happen. It’s like two books in one!
Created with the the cooperation of the The Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation and the Marx Brothers estate.
Named a Best Comic & Graphic Novel of March 2019 by B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy blog

“Classic cinema buffs and Dalí fanatics will appreciate the care and effort taken by the authors.”—Booklist
“This graphic novel is utterly one of a kind…the overall page compositions are exceptional, bursting with motion, mind-bending patterns, and wildly shifting color schemes…This messy, imperfect, fearless visual buffet is almost certainly better than any film version would have been.”—Publishers Weekly
“The graphic novel is a fun read in its own right, and the well-told story behind the story makes it an interesting part of Hollywood’s history.”—San Diego Jewish World
“A book that should satisfy fans of Dali or the Marx Brothers, or anyone looking for something completely outside the norm.”—Foreword Reviews
“A most strange yet passionately earnest graphic novel…A lavish layout, with a nice overall design and chock full of opening essays and forewords that bring the reader along on Frank’s quest to find and bring Dali’s half-baked project to full fruition."—Geeks Of Doom
“A sense of marvel persists throughout the book.”—Hyperallergic
“This book is a gallery, a museum, a riotous romp of art that reverberates through personal and public history and will make your dwelling’s shelves (and your mind) a little loonier.”—The Austin Chronicle
