Details: Fictional and storytelling gold by artist and writer Derek Marks. Volume One of Marks' fictional account of himself as Grace Jones, Jerry Hall, and Jessica Lange's fourth roommate in 1970s Paris. Hilarity and drama ensue. 

Description: From Derek Marks: "After discovering Grace Jones, Jerry Hall, and Jessica Lange were roommates in the early 1970s, the Author suddenly travels through time and lands as their 4th roommate." 14 pages with a full-color cover and black and white pages inside. 

From the author and illustrator Derek Marks: "After barely escaping Miami, a tragic gay teen goth, Derek Marks lived in the mountains of North Carolina, Albuquerque, and Seattle until settling in NYC. While studying illustration at FIT (Fine Arts Institute of Technology) and dabbling as a singer/synth player in a darkwave parody band, he got his first illustration commission from Clarkson Potter. He lives in New York City and spends his free time pretending he exists in the 1970's adjacent to glamorous hilarity."

From a feature that appeared in The Guardian (UK): "Derek Marks, a Brooklyn-based illustrator and webcomic creator, has just published Grace, Jerry, Jessica And Me. It’s a bizarro, black-and-white, nominally autobiographical comic inspired by the trivia titbit that Grace Jones, Jerry Hall, and Jessica Lange shared an apartment in Paris in the 1970s. Marks takes this obscure pub quiz answer and uses it as a launchpad for his own heightened alternate reality tale, inserting himself into the story as a fourth tenant, swapping champagne anecdotes and catty putdowns with the girls. As sharply illustrated as it is written, it’s currently just a one-off but would probably make for a more interesting TV show than waiting for Bruce Wayne’s voice to break."
