Publisher to Release Expanded Edition of “3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man”

Dark Horse Comics has announced an Expanded Edition of 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man from  New York Times bestselling graphic novelist Matt Kindt3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man (Expanded Edition) is a decades-spanning tale of love, secrets, aging, espionage, and family set in the same universe as Kindt’s other creations Dept. H and MIND MGMT. In 2009, Dark Horse released 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man to great critical acclaim! This beautiful first installment was followed by 3 Story: Secret Files of the Giant Man, which provided fans a more in-depth look at Craig Pressgang’s early spy adventures.

3 Story is a modern fable that explores the life of a giant man, Craig Pressgang, whose strange medical condition causes continuous growth. Told by the three women who knew him best, 3 Story follows Craig’s amazing journey from birth to his eventual three-story height. 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man (Expanded Edition) collects 3 Story: The Secret History of the Giant Man and 3 Story: Secret Files of the Giant Man. Craig Pressgang’s life is well documented in his official CIA biography, Giant Man: Pillar of America, but the heroic picture it paints is only half the story. The continuous growth caused by Craig’s strange gigantism brings a variety of problems as he becomes more isolated and unknowable.

Praise for 3 Story:

“The tale retains an emotional honesty, as Kindt meditates on the nature of love and belonging, the changes one makes in a relationship and the exploitation of anyone identified as different.”
—Publishers Weekly

“Matt Kindt is the man. Superb series.”
—Junot Díaz, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao

“[Matt Kindt’s] heavy, scribbly linework, executed with a precise but unfussy care, looks like nothing else out there.”
