On the eve of Denver’s Comic Con 2015, Denver Public Library is hosting comedy writer and actor Martin Olson. His dark and hilarious send up of the underworld, The Encyclopaedia of Hell, is matched only by his brilliant The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia. The latter is written by his alter ego, Hunson Abadeer, aka The Lord of Evil, aka The Nameless One. And both books are careening toward cult status. The Encyclopaedia of Hell has been optioned for a film and The Adventure Time Encyclopaedia hit the number five spot on the New York Times bestseller list.
