When Another Chance to Get it Right debuted on The Oprah Winfrey Show in 1993, Dark Horse was deluged with phone calls as people clamored to buy the book. Dark Horse is proud to offer an updated edition of the acclaimed collection of short stories, poetry, and allegory. This new edition boasts an allnew, never before published Vachss-penned prose story called "La Corazon del Ninos," along with illustrations and a magnificent new cover by Geof Darrow (The Matrix, Shaolin Cowboy, The Big Guy and Rusty the Boy Robot, Hard Boiled). The beautiful drawings add a different dimension to this celebration of the potential of parenting, a dimension that's rarely seen in the genre, making it as much inspirational as it is instructional.

Kochalka and Thompson draw together, trading the pages back and forth, adding to each others drawings as the conversation turns in unexpected directions. A wild energy forms as their two drawing styles merge together. It's like a comics version of My Dinner with Andre, but with a giant killer octopus.
