The 50 States of America presented one by one in comics by Phil Yeh's famous Patrick Rabbit and his Dinosaur friends is now in full color. One of the most popular comic books (190,000 sold) from Cartoonists Across America, a literacy group using comics for decades to teach literacy to kids all over the US, is now a beautiful, exciting, educational graphic novel, a fun way to learn about America's 50 States! Phil Yeh is the champion behind the group and well noted for his tireless tours and appearances at schools and libraries across the land, bringing literacy through comics. Colorized by Lieve Jerger.

"His book is fun!... With Dinosaurs Across America now in color, I think he'll be directly invading libraries, which is a good thing. This book will never replace those geography books on all the states, but it makes US geography fun. Who says learning stuff HAS to be boring?" -Kat Kan

Books about Philip K. Dick

Gregg Rickman was one of the early members of the legendary Uncle Jam, the free newspaper covering Health, Books, The Arts and Travel that was published by Phil Yeh from 1973 to 1991 for Southern California. Rickman covered film like no one ever since and later became a Film Professor at San Francisco State. He also interviewed a number of actors, directors and writers in his years for Uncle Jam, including some incredibly rare interviews with the late Science Fiction master Philip K. Dick. After the interviews were published in Uncle Jam, Rickman asked Yeh to publish a series of books on the author.

Thus began a long and winding road for this series. Philip K. Dick said this in a letter to Gregg, shortly before he died in 1982: "One day I'll be gone and you'll be there writing away, and how I'm remembered and thought of will (I am convinced) depend a great deal on how YOU specifically see me."

Phil Yeh designed the abstract covers for the series, which give the books a unique look, fitting for this most unique author.

Philip K. Dick's work has inspired a number of films, including Blade Runner, Total Recall, and the Keanu Reeves film A Scanner Darkly. The diversity of his fans spans the globe and P. K. Dick continues to be one of the most influential writers of the 20th century.
