A Film About Billy is a novel that alternates between comics and prose to tell the story of Collin Heart—a 17-year-old editing a documentary about his dead friend during an international suicide epidemic.
"Dan McCloskey’s debut novel is a surprise; a rollercoaster; a caustic, bitter, and honest work. What begins as one boy’s journey to make sense of a friend’s suicide unravels in unforeseen directions, a paranoid dystopia of shadow governments, rebellion, fragile hope…and horror. With breathless pacing, delirious graphic images and razor-sharp metaphor, McCloskey crafts a deeply human vision of Armageddon that I could not put down."
Elwin Cotman -The Jack Daniels Sessions EP
“Dan McCloskey is one of these new creators whose craft and level of talent increases with each successive page. It’s a pleasure to watch him grow right before my eyes.”
Ed Piskor -Brain Rot, Wizzywig
“An honest, scary, and exciting prose/comics hybrid.”
