This noir mystery shot through with sex and violence exposes the seedy underbelly of the golden age of television, now collected for the first time in an all new paperback omnibus edition

Sex Death Live TV It's 1951, and the creator and star of the daily children's show Satellite Sam turns up dead in the last place a struggling young television network wants its star to be found. His accidental death reveals a series of sordid secrets, and the discoveries his son makes trying to piece together his father's last days will send him spiraling down a dark path of murder, sex, and obsession.

This midnight-black roman noir weaves true stories of TV's golden age together with harrowing portraits of broken men and women struggling to hold on to their souls under bright lights and tabloid celebrity.

By the award-winning team of Matt Fraction (Sex Criminals, ODY-C) and Howard Chaykin (Black Kiss, American Flagg , The Shadow), this omnibus edition features all fifteen issues of Satellite Sam and an epilogue chapter created for the original hardcover collection.

About the Authors

Matt Fraction writes comic books out in the woods and lives with his wife, writer Kelly Sue DeConnick, his two children, two dogs, a cat, a bearded dragon, and a yard full of coyotes and crows. Surely there's a metaphor there. He's a New York Times-best-selling donkus of comics like Sex Criminals (winner of the 2014 Will Eisner Award for Best New Series and named TIME Magazine's Best Comic of 2013), ODY-C, and Casanova. Under their company Milkfed Criminal Masterminds, Inc., Fraction and DeConnick are currently developing television for NBC/Universal.

Howard Chaykin is a longtime veteran of the comic book business, serving as an artist and writer for nearly every publisher of comics in the past four decades...and counting. He took the '90s off to work on mostly unwatchable television, so he missed the money and dreck that was comics in that execrable decade. He is responsible, some might say culpable, for introducing a number of previously unexplored themes to comic books. If you're not hip to what that's supposed to mean, there's always Wikipedia.

Ken Bruzenak is a letterer, primarily known for his work on Howard Chaykin's American Flagg!

Industry Reviews
"Fraction and Chaykin imbue this mystery with sex and violence--neither of which is displayed graphically, but sometimes, what you don't see is more powerful than what you do."--Melissa Grey "IGN"
"Sexy, vulgar and completely entertaining."-- "Crave Online"
