After spending a decade in Washington, DC, native-Clevelander Chad Bilyeu emigrated to the Netherlands. He has been residing in Amsterdam since 2009, looking for something different but not certain precisely what. This is the tale of an obstinate autodidact in one of the world’s most infamous places. Amsterdam is a city that most know of but do not know much about. This comic book is a portrait of a diverse metropolis as presented by a man destined to live there.
Bilyeu tackles topics as vast and germane as the true story behind Hollandse Nieuwe, the more mundane aspects of nightlife in Amsterdam, and talking to one's self whilst navigating through De Wallen (better known as The Red Light District). All this and more in the third issue of Chad in Amsterdam.
This third issue of Chad in Amsterdam contains three stories and five artists. Everything is conceived, plotted, written, and produced by Chad Bilyeu. Presented with full-color front and rear covers housing 28 pages of black and white artwork.
