Too Much Coffee Man

 TMCM   (Adhesive, 1993-2000)

™ and ©1993 Shannon Wheeler

A cult favorite, Too Much Coffee Man appeals to all of us who can get through the day only with the aid of heavy doses of hot, steaming, caffeine-in-a-cup. Too Much Coffee Man (TMCM to his fans) is a sort of heroic Everyman, with a nicotine habit and a huge cup of coffee for a hat. He can’t leap tall buildings, run faster than a speeding bullet, or for that matter do any of the standard super-things. Still, he is ready to fly to Mars on a minute’s notice if the need arises…a positive mental attitude attributable to the power of caffeine.

Now if only he could shake that edgy, paranoid feeling…

Shannon Wheeler published the early adventures of TMCM in a series of tiny mini-comics. Although scarcely four inches tall with only eight story pages, they packed a surprising amount of fun into their shrunken size. It won the 1995 Eisner for Best New Series.
